Videogame-style terror attacks. This is what war looks like today.

The Taliban have posted a 23-minute video online depicting one of their members blowing himself up. The footage, recorded by a drone, shows an Afghan member of the Taliban speaking to the camera before getting into a Humvee, which had seemingly been stolen from Afghan security forces.

The video then switches to aerial footage, apparently taken by a drone, of the same vehicle speeding along a motorway towards a compound belonging to the Afghan police. The video employs target-like graphics that make it look like a videogame, a trick often used by ISIS in their propaganda.

The video ends with the vehicle exploding in a massive fireball that engulfs the police compound and fills the screen with clouds of smoke that reach up to the sky. Afghan officials say that the video appears to be genuine.
