Lebanese Hit by Bomb, Saved by Photo

Al Akhbar today featured an article about a Lebanese religious convoy hit by a bomb in Iraq. The story is normal in a non stable country like Iraq but it gets more interesting when you know how one of the Lebanese guys survived the explosion. Rida Sharry works in the company organizing the visits and when the convoy stopped on the way to Baghdad in the middle of the desert at some checkpoint, Rida was passing time chatting with a soldier. The soldier offered his bullet-proof vest to Rida so he can take some photos in it. the explosion happened right after that, and the 2 guys were hit. The soldier was killed immediatly and Rida was saved by the vest.
