3 Pakistan Bike Bombers Blow Themselves Up

From a desolate Al Jazeera:

Blast kills Pakistan ‘bombers’

February 24, 2007

Three men have been killed in central Pakistan when the bomb they were carrying accidentally exploded, according to police.

The bicycle the men were travelling on apparently hit a bump in the road in the town of Chechawatni setting off the explosion on Saturday.

Mohammed Bashir, a local police chief, told the Associated Press news agency that either a nearby cattle market or a funeral service at the home of an recently killed police officer could have been the intended target.

The head of one man has been blown off,” Bashir Ahmed, deputy police superintendent told Reuters news agency.

Another of the dead men had his legs blown off, while the third had his stomach ripped open and died later in hospital, he added.

At least two of the dead men were students at a nearby madrassa, suspected of having links to Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan, a banned Sunni Muslim group, the deputy superintendent said…

Gee, that’s horrible.
