Al three Islamic terrorists wore the fake suicide belts, reads a statement released on Sunday by London Metropolitan Police. Each belt was  DIY-ed using 3 plastic water bottles covered in silver duct tape then attached to the belt. This defensive tactic was never seen before. Besides protection against the police, the fake suicide belts added to the victims’ fear, who believed the terrorists are going to detonate themselves. Truth be told, these fake explosive belts make the bravery of regular citizens and the police who took on the terrorists even more impressive. As the official police statement puts it:

“The belt would have been visible to them and if you are fighting back or aiming a shot at someone wearing the device you would clearly be very aware that you could be caught in an explosion,”
