An extraordinarily cruel prank aired on Egyptian channel Al Nahar TV in the show “Mini Daesh” which involves actors dressed in militant uniforms and carrying crude IS flags frightening unsuspecting victims, made an Egyptian actress, Hiba Magdy, cry a river when the fake ISIS militants forced her wear a suicide belt as part of the prank.

On Monday, Al Nahar TV tweeted a clip of the bizarre hidden camera program, showing the “breakdown” of their first ‘hostage’ Magdy.

During the show, Magdy sobs uncontrollably as she is surrounded by a group of masked men carrying guns and a whip. At one point the screaming woman cowers behind a wooden chair, while a ‘terrorist’ attempts to wrap a prop suicide vest stuffed with hoax explosives around her.

The traumatic trick culminates with police apparently surrounding the building as firecrackers go off and a man in a balaclava points a rocket launcher at the door.
