    One can only imagine how many more of these nutcases are awaiting the right moment to strike. This is a f*cked up way to die.

    This is always a concern when using local guides or security. It is very hard to be sure they are not actually the enemy in disguise. Personally I won't work with locals unless we know where their relatives live, and even then we watch our backs every second. The giveaway is to violate their recommendations and see how they react. If they are too insistent about taking a particular path at a particular time it's likely a trap.

    Sounds pretty common sense to me. I guess you never really do know who belongs to what group after working hours.
