The upset caused by the knowledge that their women and younger children were dead, no doubt filled them with rage in this fight to the death called saka.

Today, the most common suicide weapons are antipersonnel bombs carried by a single person. Such bombs are typically used to carry out terrorist attacks (suicide bombings are less common, although not unknown, in conventional warfare). suicide bombers strap explosives (often covered with nails, screws, or other items intended to act as fragments to their bodies  or otherwise carry them into populated areas and detonate them.
