Iraqi Reality Show Popular

Well its interesting...I don't really know what to think about this.

-Al-Iraquya

A reality show featuring brutal confessions from suspected insurgents captured and held by the Iraqi military has become the country's most popular television show, according to a Local 6 News report. The show, "Terrorism in the Hands of Justice," airs on on Iraq's Al-Iraquya channel every night at 9 p.m. In front of a camera, suspects offer detailed accounts of kidnappings, beheadings and bombings.

Confessions include descriptions of attacks on police and military. "We detonated two IEDs on the police and killed six of them," an insurgent said on one of the recently broadcasted shows. Also during some shows, victims' families confront men who killed their loved ones, according to the report.

"I watch every day, all of us do," an Iraqi citizen said. "I will rush home just to watch it."
