Human bombs putting explosives in body

Just freakin' wonderful. PrairiePundit: Human bombs putting explosives in body

It looks like they have not mastered the art of shaping the charge so the blast goes outward. That suggest the body cavity they used directed the blast downward probably through the anus. If they used metal, the detectors would have read it. Shrapnel buried in body tissue will usually trip the detector so there is no reason it would not detect that in a body cavity. My speculation is that the bomb did not use metal.

This does appear to be part of an increasingly desperate attempt by al Qaeda to stay relevant as the world closes in on them. I think the recent spat of failed attacks are also a reflection of that desperation.
