Syrian rebel accidentally blows himself up after taking ‘selfie’ with phone rigged with explosives

A video showing a Syrian rebel blowing himself and his fellow freedom fighters up after taking a selfie with a phone rigged with explosives is going viral.

The 29 second footage shows several Syrian freedom fighters gathered in a room in front of two rifles, one of them speaking into a microphone.

Nineteen seconds into the video, one man can be seen lifting a phone as if he was about to take a selfie, then — BOOM!

As the dust settles, the men in the room can be heard shouting “Allah Akbar,” which means “God is great” in Arabic.
