Wedding guest killed in Iraq

A wedding guest was shot dead at point-blank range when another wedding guest lost control of the Kalashnikov he was firing in the air to celebrate.

The horrific footage which was taken in Iraq shows a man shooting his weapon into the air as the wedding crowd were cheering and clapping during the ceremony.

Suddenly, he lost control of his gun and the next bullet was lodged at the back of the head of a man standing inches away from him.

The crowd can be heard screaming in panic after the wedding guest who was dressed in white fell to the ground.

People have reportedly died in different countries from similar accidents.

A young woman was killed in northern France after getting shot in the head from celebratory gunfire at a wedding in July.
