Mad Man Threatens To Detonate Bomb In A Mosque, Before Arrest.

With threats of bomb explosions and mass shootings in mosques, churches and public places, it may just be the wisest decision for one to stay indoors but that, too, isn’t a guarantee for safety. “Where then can we rest in peace?”

If life is this hard, it’s my humble opinion that death should be easy.

A horrific incident in a mosque was successfully brought under control as a mad man had wanted to blow himself up among worshippers. Thanks to his cooked-up brains, he couldn’t assemble the wires properly.
He was almost lynched by an angry mob at Sabanci Mosque in southern Turkey after he threatened to detonate a bomb.
Police promptly responded and were only able to rescue him from the crowd after firing into the air, RT reported.

Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency said the incident took place during Friday prayers. The man climbed onto the pulpit during the sermon reading, forced the microphone out of the imam’s hands and shouted: “I have a bomb on me!”  

Haberler reports that he then pulled up his shirt revealing a cable dangling over a white corset claimed to have “live bombs” in it.

The majority of the congregation moved toward the door, while others walked to the perpetrator and tried to grab him.

Istanbul Haber newspaper states the man was dragged outside and beaten by the angry congregation, until police arrived and started firing into the air to drive the crowd away.

The man was then arrested and brought to the local Adana police headquarters.

Turkish media identified the man as 33-year-old Mahmoud K., a local resident thought to be mentally unstable. Police said his hand-made explosive corset did contain explosive materials, but was not properly prepared to be detonated.

Zaman reports that police had to evacuate people from the mosque, fearing there could still be a bomb there. The newspaper reports, however, that police did not find any explosives within the mosque or in the yard.

Ambulances were sent to the mosque yard to take care of those injured in a stampede that took place while the crowd of several thousand people was trying to flee the mosque.

An investigation has been launched into the incident.
