Man sucked out of passenger jet was wheelchair bound suicide bomber, claim investigators

Rebel Staff

Investigators believe the man sucked out of a passenger jet over Somalia was a suicide bomber who smuggled his device on board in his wheelchair.

The suspected terrorist, believed to be part of the Somalia-based Islamic group known as Al-Shabaab, may have faked a disability to con his way through security checks at Mogadishu airport, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing a Western diplomat briefed on the investigation.

The man who died falling from Daallo Airlines Flight D3159, which was forced into an emergency landing following a suspected explosion five minutes after take off on Tuesday, has been named as Abdullah Abdisalam Borleh, 55, from Somaliland—but it has not been confirmed if he was the suicide bomber.

Survivor Hassan Mohamed Nur told the MailOnline: “I saw the passenger, a man in his early 60s, get sucked out of the plane. There was a huge bang. A big hole appeared in the side of the jet and the man disappeared through it.

“One minute he was sat in his seat, the next he was gone. He’d been sucked out of the plane.

“People were screaming. We all thought we were going to die.”

Two U.S. government sources have claimed that early forensic testing had found possible traces of the explosive TNT on the Airbus A321 aircraft, Reuters reports. But officials are urging caution as such tests have a high false-positive rate, and more tests are ongoing.

Daallo Airlines, the national carrier of the Horn of Africa country of Djibouti, said on its website: “Pilots managed to land the aircraft back (in) Mogadishu Airport safely and without any further incident. All passengers, except one, disembarked safely.”

Two passengers are reported to have been taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Al-Shabaab, which has carried out regular attacks on officials, government sites and civilians in Somalia, and was behind the infamous Westgate shopping mall assault in neighbouring Kenya in 2011, is yet to claim responsibility for the suspected bombing.

Maybe “the good Lord took a liking to him and blowed him up real good”. John Candy and Joe Flaherty. Farm Film report. Seriously it hard to understand what kind of message these random selfish senseless acts are suppose to convey?

Maybe he didn’t know that his wheel chair could prematurely eject him before his evil deed. I love when that happens.

He sucked at blowing.

I so enjoy a feel good, happy ending story. Thanks. It will be interesting to see how the usual band of bottom feeders over at the cbc attempt to convince themselves this was all Harper’s fault.

Peter Netterville: I can imagine the 72 virgins all lined up doing simultaneous face palms as they prepare to get stuck with this loser and all the known terrorist groups rushed to disclaim responsibility.

Bill quipped, “That must have sucked….”

I just had to read that as I was taking a sip of coffee. Now I have coffee on my keyboard. Good one! ;o)

Well, I guess the wheelchair guy won’t be getting his 72 virgins because his bomb did not explode properly and no one else died.

Poor physics education + poor ambition + poor ideology = spectacular result!

Oh No! I hope he landed safely.

That must have sucked….

Ya beat me to it Dirty Harry – Dunham’s act has nothing on the reality of Jihadi comedy.

Yeah Richard or maybe a new character for Jeff Dunham.

This is why I never fly on third world airlines or on an Islamic based airlines or on airlines that might have islamics driving the plane. You should not either.

Looks like material for Ackmed the Dead Terrorist
commented 2016-02-04 21:31:54 -0500
The question begs to be asked … will this POS terrorist get to hang out with Ah-Ah-Lah-Choo (excuse me) and get his virgins?
commented 2016-02-04 21:26:26 -0500
Awesome, the only one killed was the suicide bomber terrorist. How embarrassing!

HA! I was just thinking the past couple of days while working that I’d wager a bet the person sucked out was the bomber! HA!
