An oblivious patrol wanders into a carefully laid kill-zone and is brutally ambushed by militants in this brief, but violent video.
The footage allegedly comes from somewhere in Algeria between the Algerian Army and Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). Given that support for AQIM in Algeria has been at an all-time low, the footage is probably a few years old. A patrol of soldiers slowly marches down a road, entering view and moving towards the unseen camera. Once the lead element of the not very tactical, tactical column enters the established kill-zone, the concealed militants open fire. They unleash deadly confusion on the now scrambling soldiers who flee in all directions and likely kill at least one.
