Baghdad: A sensational video showing how vulnerable people are in terrorism-hit and Islamic State-controlled Iraq has now come to fore.
The video shows an Iraqi national shouting 'Allah hu Akbar', which means ‘God is Great,’ in a crowded market in Kirkuk. The man is mistaken by many as a 'suicide bomber', and triggers panic among those present at the moment.
The video, taken by a CCTV camera, shows people running helter-skelter to save their lives presuming that the 'suicide bomber' will soon blew himself.
'Allah hu Akbar' has now become a catchphrase for terrorists, who use it right before they carry out suicide attacks.
Iraq was on Sunday targeted by suicide bombers, who killed more than 200 people including several women and children. The attack is tagged as one of the deadliest since the 2003-US invasion. The bomb blast is said to have been in retaliation to Iraqi forces dislodging ISIS from Falluja last month.
Here is the viral video.
