There's obviously some questions of authenticity when it comes to videos like this, so let's take a look at two still images, one from the video, and one from state media
Although the quality of the video is poor, and the smoke from the apparent explosion obscures finer details, a few things do stand out. The white objects on the right of the table appears to match, as does the damage to the mosaic. The furniture and stripes on the wall appear to match as well, so either this is an extremely elaborate fake, or a genuine video.
The question is then, what does this show? Some people have queried the actions of the first man who approaches him, suggesting he could be stabbing Al-Bouti, while others think he's trying to pull Al-Bouti out of the way. It's something that will certainly be looked at very closely in the coming days, and is sure to generate a lot of discussion.
