Several people at a wedding in Yemen were shot after a guest pulled out an AK-47 assault rifle and tried to fire celebratory shots into the air. The troubling incident occurred as crowds got together to dance.
Weddings should be festive, joyous events, however one recent ceremony in Yemen ended up being a complete tragedy. Several people at the wedding were shot after a guest pulled out an AK-47 assault rifle.
The troubling incident occurred as guests gathered to dance. As part of the celebratory efforts, a man began dancing along with everyone else while holding the gun and shooting towards the sky.
The entire ordeal was captured on camera. The hit song Gangnam Style can be heard blasting in the background. When the chorus begins, the machine gun was heard in the footage.
While the actual shooting was not caught on film, when the camera points downwards, bloody bodies could be seen lying on the ground. The music then quickly stopped as guests rushed to help the wounded.
Although the footage which just recently appeared online remains unconfirmed, 2 of the wedding guests were reportedly killed, and an additional two people were severely wounded.
Celebratory gunfire is common in Yemen, especially at weddings. However with that tradition, reports of accidental deaths often surface as a result.
