Tomorrow: A World Exclusive on this blog!

Tomorrow will be a special day on this blog. I'll post a world exclusive video on Harryzzz of a Fatah al Islam militant (bascially Al Qaeda) who gets directly hit by a mortar and is catapulted 40 meters into the air. I shot the video myself, last Tuesday, while on assignment in the outskirts of the Nahr al Bared camp, north of the Lebanese town of Tripoli.

To my knowledge, this is the first time ever that such war footage was shot on camera. I mean - you literally see the guy flying through the air.

I shot the flying terrorist from pretty far away (with a little, cheap digital camera) so it isn't bloody. Don't expect any morbid details.

Nevertheless - to me this is amazing, never seen before footage. I've spent yesterday and today getting the video professionally zoomed in. So check this blog tomorrow morning. It's truly a unique witness to the insanity of war.
