Kurdish reporter Hunar Ahmed and his Rudaw news team were embedded with Iraqi Federal Police near Mosul when the unit came under complex attack by Islamic State forces. The ISIS fighters were eventually shot down or sent into retreat. As the police went forward to clear their surroundings, a wounded ISIS member detonated his suicide vest just five meters from the reporters, injuring some police and sending pieces of himself flying in all directions.
We had recently blogged a video of this event that was filmed from a different angle. Although the footage was incredible, this Rudaw news team footage is filmed in high definition and is that much more remarkable to see. To see our previous blog regarding the instance, click >>>HERE<<<
