    A wounded would-be suicide bomber lies in the distance as the camera records the following events. The soldiers fire several rounds into the insurgent. The explosive material on his person ignites, starting a fire. "He's burning now," one of the soldiers says. Several more rounds are fired at the flaming corpse until the explosives laden vest detonates under the intense heat from the flames. The soldiers are rocked backwards in their vehicle after the hefty blast. The video was filmed late last year in Sinjar, Iraq.

    NORMAN, Okla. -- A University of Oklahoma student who blew himself up outside a packed Gaylord Family/Oklahoma Memorial Stadium probably didn't commit suicide, a Norman police bomb expert said.

When asked if he believed Hinrichs meant to enter the stadium with the explosives, Mauldin said, "I don't believe he intended for an explosion to occur at that spot (on a nearby park bench)." Hinrichs, of Colorado Springs, Colo., had two to three...
