    Could've been intended to harm/kill others if explosives went off while it was travelling rather than being parked at their home. Not sure whether terrorism or targeted murder attack. Could be either.

    Doubt its terrorism, it sounds like only the driver was targeted. Though suicide bombers aren't the brightest of people...

    Have you considered the possibility that the car was being driven by a terrorist on an explosives delivery run, or on his way to commit an atrocity? An own goal, so to speak.

    Oh come on it's not like they could explode by accident or through a fault in construction

    But yes as I said best wait till we have some facts before making assumptions

    Wow. Only 5 days after blowing up a 4 year old boy and his mother it looks like the Muslims may have struck again.

    Worse, Turkey. An immigrant blew up those two innocent Turks. You'd think they'd be more grateful of their generous hosts wouldn't you?
