KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) A mother who tried to stop her son from carrying out a suicide bomb attack triggered an explosion in the family's home in southern Afghanistan that killed the would-be bomber, his mother and three siblings, police said Monday.
The would-be bomber had been studying at a madrassa, or religious school, in Pakistan, and when he returned to his home in Uruzgan province over the weekend announced that he planned to carry out a suicide attack, Interior Ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary said.
Surviving family members told police that the suicide vest exploded during a struggle between the mother and her son, said Juma Gul Himat, Uruzgan's police chief. The man's brother and two sisters were also killed.
Family members said the would-be bomber gave his family $3,600 before telling them he intended to carry out the attack, Himat said.
Bashary said the explosion happened on Sunday, but Himat said it occurred on Monday morning. It was not clear why the two accounts differed.
In a second accidental explosion, another would-be bomber killed himself Friday in Paktika province when he tried to take off the bomb vest he was wearing and it exploded, Bashary said. The man told authorities he had been instructed by his handlers in Pakistan to launch a suicide attack, but changed his mind when he saw people praying in a mosque.

Making the family a recipient of Darwin Awards would not be fair here.

Inadvertent explosive device.......
They blow up so fast..
The mother was a saint.
The only religion I know of that tells its adherents it’s okay to kill yourself as long as you take other people with you......
For whatever reason, at least she wasn’t like those Palestinian mothers.
This is an extreme example of the end result of school indoctrination. What's happening in our schools here is the same, only to a lesser degree (it's fatal, but takes longer).
Wipe out your own gene pool.
End of argument.
They should spread the word about this incident throughout Afghanistan. Demonize this POS, and the next POS will think twice.
I WONDER IF THEY WILL WANT THEIR $3,600 BACK
That's no surprise. Pakistan has over sixty five thousand madrassas! I saw that on a FOX News special over 3 years ago. God only knows how many they have by now.
Kids as young as 5 are started out being taught hate and are so brainwashed by the time they're teens that they are completely possessed by demons. The western world is in for a rough time ahead when, like this kid, they get old enough to carry out suicide attacks. Fortunately he killed 5 of them and not us. We won't always be that lucky though.
No, but HE is absolutely the ultimate Darwin Award winner, because he not only took his own genes out of circulation, but lots of very closely related genes. Hence we, the survivors, are FAR, FAR better off.
That said, and all black humor aside, it seems that at least the guy's mother was decent enough to try to stop him. To the extent that any member of his family was innocent in the matter, this is a true tragedy.
Nothing like the real law of Darwin:
