Najih Al-Badawi

ISIS attacked a shrine in Balad, Iraq, killing 40 people, and injuring 74. However one person stand out.

Najih Al-Badawi, according to numerous eyewitnesses, saw a bomber approach the shrine, embraced him, and took the full force of the blast. None of the other bombers entered the shrine and detonated their explosives in the street.

Had it not been for Al-Badawi, undoubtedly more people would've lost their lives. Rest in peace.
