What Exactly Happened To The Body Of Dusit Suicide Bomber?


What Exactly Happened To The Body Of Dusit Suicide Bomber?

The occupants of the Secret Gardens restaurant were treated to magnified horror when they scampered for safety after hearing a very loud explosion outside the hotel. 
For many who thought it was a gas cylinder that had exploded were met with the shock of their lives when they stepped out of the door and the air was filled with the smell of roasting meat.
The body of Mahir Khalid Riziki was all over the place in the form of chunks of meat, some of which was burning. People running away stepped on his bones and meat and it was almost unimaginable to believe that a complete human being had been standing in the same place some few minutes ago.
What Mahir Khalid Riziki was wearing is a suicide vest which is an improvised explosive device in the form of a vest packed with explosives and armed with a detonator.
The vest only weighs a maximum of 20 kilograms and can easily be concealed under heavy clothes. This explains why the people at the barbershop did not notice that he was wearing it. The people who passed by the place he was standing did not also notice anything unusual with Khalid.
He was wearing a white shirt and a black suit as described by the last man to come in close proximity with him.
The suicide vest consists of several cylinders with pipe bombs. In some cases, explosive plates may be used in the place of cylinders. The explosive is surrounded by a fragmentation jacket that is responsible for the shrapnel produced by the bomb.
The suicide bomber was obliterated by the vest which is a common occurrence in suicide bombing cases. It is not clear why the bomber decided to detonate himself while alone because the vest is placed in his body in such a way that it channels the energy of the blast outwards so that anyone standing close to him is harmed.
Even though the vest's position channels the energy outwards, some of the energy inevitably rolls upwards hence ripping the suicide bomber apart at his weakest points.
The police could have possibly used Khalid's head to identify him because the explosion usually separated the head from the body in an instant and the head is thrown clear of the body hence remaining relatively in one piece.
