SPAM KILLS TERRORIST....Talk about reach out and touch someone....

SPAM....the computer variety is a nuisance.....I actually like the Canned meat type....spent time in Hawaii where they eat a lot of it, but I digress.....

Getting it on your cell phone can be a real pain or in the case of the terrorist in Moscow who planned a New Year's Eve Massacre, it can be down right deadly.....Luckily, she was the only person taken out by the SPAM that sealed her fate.....Kudos to her phone service providers.

Awesome use of the techonology Dude.....bloody brilliant....

Text message blows up suicide bomber by accident
By Andrew Osborn, The Daily Telegraph

A "Black Widow" suicide bomber planned a terrorist attack in central Moscow on New Year's Eve but was killed when an unexpected text message set off her bomb too early, according to Russian security sources.

The unnamed woman, who is thought to be part of the same group that struck Moscow's Domodedovo airport on Monday, intended to detonate a suicide belt near Red Square on New Year's Eve in an attack that could have killed hundreds.

Security sources believe a message from her mobile phone operator wishing her a happy new year received just hours before the planned attack triggered her suicide belt, killing her at a safe house.

Islamist terrorists in Russia often use mobile phones as detonators. The bomber's handler, who is usually watching their charge, sends the bomber a text message in order to set off his or her explosive belt at the moment when it is thought they can inflict maximum casualties.

The dead woman has not been identified, but her husband is apparently serving time in jail for being a member of a radical Islamist terror group.

Security sources believe the New Year's Eve bomber and the airport bombers may have been members of a suicide squad trained in Pakistan's al-Qaida strongholds which was sent to target the Russian capital's transport system.

Nobody has been arrested in connection with Monday's bombing, which left 35 people dead. Police are trying to identify the severed head of a male suicide bomber recovered from the scene.
