This is the horrific moment a Syrian rebel appears to blow himself and his comrades up by using a mobile phone rigged to a bomb to take a SELFIE .

Footage emerged online showing a group of eight men, believed to be members of the Free Syrian Army , gathered around a camera. The freedom fighters , flanked by rifles, appear to be filming a propaganda video as they are shown in front of a rebel flag as they sing into a microphone. The 30-second clip, which has not been verified, shows one of the rebels holding a mobile phone up in front of his face to take a selfie of the group. See Video:
