Anatomy of a suicide bomb Failed fanatic kneels by TNT as troops jeer

( A failed suicide bomber kneels in humiliation surrounded by Iraqi troops next to the car and explosives he planned to use to cause an atrocity.

The 27-year-old was stopped at a checkpoint in the southern city of Karbala and was found to be carrying 70 to 140lb of TNT and several detonators in his Toyota. Police said they believe the bomber intended to target the city’s Imam Hussein shrine, one of Shia Islam’s holiest sites.

The Iraqi forces, who took control of Karbala from the US last month, were keen that the world should see their successful thwarting of the plot.

They made the bruised bomber kneel on the floor and lined up the explosives in front of him, jeering as photographers took pictures.

The scene was watched by two brigadier generals from Karbala’s provincial police.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi Red Crescent said yesterday nearly 2.3 million of the country’s 22 million citizens have fled their homes. It said the vast majority were women and children who were still in Iraq but in urgent need of food, clothing and medical supplies.

It added: “The majority suffer from disease, poverty and malnutrition.”


Suicide bombs account for 48 per cent of terrorism-related deaths.

Thirty-three countries have fallen victim to suicide bombers including the UK and US.
