Although Seifedeen Mustafa’s suicide belt was later determined to be a fake, 26-year old British fellow Ben Innes didn’t know it at the time. He took the photo because as he tells it to The Sun:
“I’m not sure why I did it, I just threw caution to the wind while trying to stay cheerful in the face of adversity. I figured if his bomb was real I’d nothing to lose anyway, so took a chance to get a closer look at it.”
I can’t stop laughing and cringing at the same time.
