Woman 'Suicide Bomber' Roaming Beirut Streetsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Lebanese woman Rima Najdi has come up with a unique way to protest the recent deadly bombings that have rocked Lebanon.
She wrapped herself in a hoax suicide vest and roamed several Beirut streets on Sunday.
The woman "wore a vest carrying fake sticks of TNT and wandered in Beirut's streets on Sunday," the pan-Arab daily al-Hayat reported.
People rushed to take pictures with the “suicide bomber,” said the newspaper.
Najdi announced her stunt on Facebook. “Madame Bomba - TNT Project: Popular Protest. Mobile dynamite roaming Beirut's streets,” she said.
Al-Hayat said the woman walked through Hamra, Ain el-Mreisseh, Downtown, Gemmayze, Ashrafiyeh and Ras al-Nabaa to “shed light on the meaning of being Lebanese and how you don't know when you might be the victim of a bombing or a terrorist act.”
According to the newspaper, Najdi is a painter and performer who lives in Berlin and shuttles between Lebanon and Germany. She inaugurated a painting exhibition in New York in November.
