BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – A heroic Iraqi police officer saved dozens of lives in the Babel Governorate, today, after a would-be suicide bomber attempted to enter a mosque in the Musayeb District.

According to the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, the unnamed police officer hugged the suicide bomber before he could enter the mosque in the Al-Musayeb; this would obstruct the terrorist’s path.

The Ministry of Defense added that the police officer was killed after the suicide bomber detonated his belt – no other casualties were reported.

No group has claimed responsibility for this terrorist attack.

Bad a*s cop! So sad he died, heroes like him don’t deserve to.
A good katana may had been a better thing for him :
no way to push the button to explode the belt if your arm has just
been chopped off.
Morality : Iraq needs ninjas.
