WTF Mate: Al Qaeda Were Using SEGA Carts As Bombs

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Eurogamer have reported that a report released by Wikileaks details Al Qaeda plans to use SEGA cartridges as bombs in attacks during 2002. The report specifically mentions that Khalid Shaikh Mohammed had stockpiled bombs hidden in “black SEGA videogame cassette cartridges”.

“These RCFDs (remote controlled firing devices) were built inside black Sega videogame cassette cartridges to protect the RCFDs and to make them appear innocuous.” Guantánamo inmate Hassan Mohammed Ali Bin Attash was also shown how to make remote detonators out of the game cartridges.

The report doesn’t detail that the devices were ever used so if you’re ordering loose Mega Drive cartridges off eBay, be careful they don’t explode! (This is a joke. Only a select few of my MD carts have ever exploded.)

Trust the fan scene to keep the Dreamcast alive!
