    Officials say a suicide bomber detonated on an empty beach in front of a hotel in the Tunisian Mediterranean resort town of Sousse. He was the only fatality. An employee at the hotel told the BBC the blast occurred at 09:45 local time (08:45 GMT) close to the Riadh Palms hotel and that no-one was hurt except for the bomber.

    The male attacker was wearing a belt of explosives according to Tunisia's Tap state news agency. The AFP news agency reported that witnesses said the bomber was spotted and chased from the hotel onto an empty beach where he blew himself up.
    In a separate plot to attack ex-President Habib Bourguiba's tomb, security sources say police captured another would-be suicide bomber before he could detonate.

    Interior Ministry spokesman Mhamed Ali Laroui told AFP, "an attempted attack targeting the compound of the Bourguiba mausoleum was foiled... and a young man carrying explosives was arrested."
    Since the 2011 uprising, Tunisia has seen a rise in attacks by militants.
    Some attacks more successful than others.

    And the other one was trying to blow up a dead guy...................

    Yep, especially when the suicide bomber wasn't selling tickets to the sphincter show.

    I wonder if the guy was forced to wear the vest by terrorists and chose to detonate it away from people on purpose. Or, he had last minute doubts about killing other people and chose not to.


    My Pollyanna side likes to think so, at least.

    My realistic side says it could also have been a remote detonation of a coward thought to be running away. That's been reported, especially with teen and pre-teen boys and girls.

    Sting wrote that song in the 80s, in which he said "I hope the Russians love their children, too". That's the problem with terrorists-they're not fighting to make the world a better place for their children, they are willing to sacrifice their children for no gain.

    Not for "no gain." They get to put a snazzy "My Jihadi blew up your honor student" bumper sticker on the family car. Of course, that only lasts until the next kid converts it into a car bomb, but still, bragging rights...

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
