*”I was on patrol with a company, visiting polling station. The day was tense. Suddenly we ran into an old red car driving fast just in front of us. When the driver saw the army caravan, he turned around and accelerated, and a pursuit began… The vehicle was intercepted some 100 yards in front of us by another hummer who drove on an alternate path. When I reached the car, he was already being blindfold, and sitting on the back of the truck, he was praying aloud, a U.S. captain approached him and was reflected in the window. He asked the translator what he was saying. ‘He’s asking allah to save him,’ the translator said. The answer triggered laughter from the soldiers.”
