London: A report by the Conflict Armament Research (CAR), a weapons monitoring group, has revealed that the entry-level Nokia 105 is a favourite among Islamic State terrorists building remote-controlled explosive devices in Iraq.

Microsoft, which now makes Nokia phones, promotes Nokia 105 for its durability and long battery life.

It is available for as low as $30 in the United States.

“These people have streamlined the industry of bomb-making with this particular phone,” said Leff.
