Call them social network jihadist drones. Isis has begun to use the mini aircraft to videotape its suicide missions and then distribute the film on social network sites not only to terrorise but to recruit more militants.
In one video, a suicide bomber first appears next to his explosives-packed truck. He hugs his fellow soldiers before driving through a Libyan city and detonates himself — while a drone flies overhead and records it all, reports Wired. The video, reportedly circulated in January, shows the explosion from the sky. It marked the first time Isis used a drone to record a suicide bomber’s final moments, according to Wired.
