Under the skin of Al-Qaeda's would-be suicide bombers

Abu Ali (L) and Abu Ljaman (C), both would-be suicide bombers for Al-Nusra Front in Syria, sit with a third man called Khattab in the Aleppo region during May 2015One is a devout and cheery Saudi, the other a British convert overcome by doubt, the third a Syrian fascinated by the promise of 72 virgins: a new documentary unveils the shadowy world of Syria’s would-be suicide bombers. In a rare, in-depth look at the Al-Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, the 58-minute documentary “Dugma, the Button” reveals the convictions and doubts of those ready to become martyrs — “the precision weaponry of the poor,” in the words of the filmmaker, Norwegian journalist Pal Refsdal. The film follows the three future suicide bombers as they wait for their missions, without any commentary.
