Hide your 8-bit collect as Al Qaeda terrorists have been trained in the art of Sega cartridge bomb-building.

Those crafty terrorists continue to innovate their weapons of violence. “The Dirty 30”, 30 of Osama Bin Laden’s top security brass, were captured and imprisoned years ago, yet still continue to unveil how devious their plots for attacks were.

One prisoner being held in Guantanamo Bay is an expert at building bomb detonators with the chips from Sega game cartridges. Along with bringing new meaning to the term “videogame violence”, he was also trained in “assassination and the use of poisons and disguises.” He hasn’t confirmed whether his skill has previously been put to practical use.

Be forewarned travelers to politically volatile countries; their technology for warfare is as recent as their videogame consoles.
