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:
“The removal of the weak, dangerous and mentally ill from the shallow end of the Human Genome Pool.”
Poof goes the gene pool. Good riddance.
Oh really? She sent her kid to a brainwashing school, knowing exactly what he was going to learn there- then chickens out- and she’s a saint?
Their ‘religion’ killed them all.
They always send the innocent, never the mad Mullahs.
Perhaps they should have stopped the child before he started attending the indoctrination facilities in the first place. Monsters like this are created over a period of years.
How many times did Momma pat him on the head and tell him how proud she was when he did well in his school work? Then she gets all upset when it is time to take the Final Exam.
A few less suicide bombers in the world.
Maybe this will make some of the hate-filled death cult members think. But I doubt it.
Must...not...comment...on the tragedy or merit of this event...
This story is sad...
Maybe other young wana-be homicide bombers will think twice...
Maybe alla really doesnt wont”infidels” dead...
What goes around comes around. However, it was at the expense of a mother and three of her children. How can ANYONE look at this without condemnation? Boggles the mind. These people are truly out of their minds.
That was the reason for my post. It seems he was indoctrinated and but not everyone. That being said, it is better his own family suffers than a completely unknown civil center.
Does he get the virgins under the circumstances?
The hate-filled bastards should stop bringing up their kids as hate-filled bastards who blow themselves up along with Jews and Christians. If the parents encourage it, or allow it, they are as guilty.
Sounds like the Pakistanis need to take these adolescent “cries for help” more seriously. I mean, isn’t this the type of ‘suicide’ warning we always heard about growing up? /sarc
Allah must be greatly honored by such sacrifices made in his name.
This one did not kill himself. This one was killed by his supervisor with a back-up detonator.
Some of these "suicides" are probably not suicides at all. If somebody points a gun at you and straps a bomb to your chest, which will explode if you try to remove it, it is hard to call the explosion a completely voluntary act.
It is so painfully obvious that "jihad" is not a spontaneous movement, but a program heavily funded by outsiders.
I haven’t watched this in full, so I hope there isn’t anything appropriate, but more Dunham and Achmed.
BwwhhahahaHAHAHahhahaa.... that was SO cold and yet SO hilarious...... HHHAHAHahahhahahaaa.....
INappropriate, but I guess the original sentence is better. Heh.
Agreed, esp. as: 1) His own family has to share at least some small portion of the blame (unless he had such genetic/chemical imbalances in his brain that no upbringing would have stopped this) and 2) It is likely that more people would have died and been injured had he gotten to his intended target.
Chalk up another victory for the ROP.
I can’t entirely disagree - unless there was a real genetic/chemical imbalance problem that wouldn’t have prevented it no matter what his upbringing, then the family (esp. mamma) has some blame. Still, she tried to stop him. She at least partially redeemed herself by that act (assuming the testimony is true).
The homework load from the madrassa can be deadly.
Our deviate kids get a gun and go to their HS to freak out. Theirs, call it religious fervor and take out a bus load of other kids or the village market place.
So, anyway, what did they end up doing with the $3,600?
