CHEECHA WATNI, Pakistan (AP) -- Three Islamic militants died in eastern Pakistan when a powerful bomb they were transporting by bicycle accidentally exploded Saturday near a bustling cattle market, police said.Og jeg som synes, det er irriterende når min cykel punkterer mens jeg er på vej til arbejde. Men selv at ryge i luften må virkelig ødelægge hele dagen.
Mohammed Shakil, a police inspector at the scene, told The Associated Press one of the men riding a bicycle had strapped explosives to his body that exploded prematurely, killing himself and the two others in Cheecha Watni, a town about 100 kilometers (60 miles) east of Multan, a city in Punjab province.
Shakil said the slain men were students of a local seminary and had links with Sipah-e-Sahaba -- a Sunni militant group outlawed by the government in 2001 in an effort to purge Pakistan of extremism.
The severed head of one of the militants was found in a nearby field, Shakil said. Police collected the suspects' remains for DNA testing.

Så skete det igen. En wanna-be hellig kriger sprængte sig selv og to af hans kammerater i stumper og stykker, da hans bombe eksploderede, mens de var på vej til deres mål på cykel.
