Man unharmed by IED explosion but did he trigger it?
Interesting video of an IED explosion while there is a pedestrian waiting on the side of the road. At 1 minute in the video the man lifts his right
hand, as if he is pressing a trigger followed immediately by the explosion itself.
However he may have just signalled to the trigger man to explode the bomb just when he thought the Humvee was in range.
The IED seems to be a very focused explosion so may be a modified landmine and maybe the guy thought he was out of the blast radius.
You have to admit its a sneaky idea, I think people would be less likely to expect an explosion right where a pedestrian is standing.
Notice how fast the bradley came up and dismounted the men.
