(KGTV) - Does a video show a plane narrowly avoiding a fuel tanker on the runway in a failed terrorist attack in Algeria?

No.

The video seen by thousands of people online is actually a scene from the video game "Grand Theft Auto V."

A gamer posted it to show off their skill.

But the clip was realistic enough to fool a lot of people including a top political leader in Pakistan who retweeted it.
