This may be the best footage I’ve ever seen.
In this video, provided by the U.K. Daily Mail, we get a rare glimpse into something we don’t often see: hostages refusing to comply.
Three men were forced on their knees while three other stood over them holding AK-pattern assault rifles (four, if you include the cameraman, who seems to have been armed).
They were stood up and marched to the ground that would presumably become their graves.
Enter: one very, very desperate man.
The prisoner on the right of the camera shot reverse head-butted one of his captors and and goes for his weapon. Outnumbered, he then went to battle with the entire jihadi detachment.
