Shock Video Shows Arab Children ‘Playing’ Suicide Bomb Game

A sickening video has emerged out of Pakistan which shows young children role-playing a Taliban suicide bombing. The short video shows one boy dressed all in black — the “bomber” — bidding farewell to friends before running past a “security officer” (dressed in white) to detonate his make-believe bomb in the middle of a small group.

A gruesome “explosion” is simulated by throwing dust and sand into the air as the bomber’s “victims” fall lifeless to the ground.

According to the Daily Mail, the video was posted online by Ahsan Masood, a Pashtun from Waziristan in Pakistan who thought the video was “funny.” Masood guessed the video had been filmed in Khost, Afghanistan before being sent to him from a friend.

The distressing video seems to show innocent children using role-play to understand the violent circumstances they see in their everyday lives, the Mail notes.

Salma Jafar of Save the Children UK in Pakistan, told The Guardian: ‘It’s horrifying and alarming.

‘These children have become fascinated by bombers rather than condemning them.

‘If they glamorise violence now, they can become part of it later in life.’
