(VIDEO)When a sniper bullet just misses a journalist — but destroys his GoPro

Ammar al-Waeli is a journalist covering the fighting in Mosul, a city in northern Iraq. A stunning video captured the moment a sniper bullet whizzed past his face, shattering the GoPro attached to his shoulder.

On May 12, al-Waeli was covering the Iraqi army offensive to recapture the western side of Mosul from Islamic State group forces. He was chatting with a colleague when a bullet narrowly missed his face, and his GoPro exploded.

The close call was filmed by Owen Holdaway, a British freelance journalist.
