Iraq's Suicide Bombers Remain Lethal Mystery

By Michael Georgy
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A few Iraqis have spotted them speeding toward death before they disintegrate in a bloody fireball. But little is known of Iraq's suicide bombers except that the supply seems endless.

Suicide bombers are the biggest security nightmare in Iraq, terrorizing the streets up to three times a week with huge explosions that have killed more than 1,000 people.

But Iraq's interim government, struggling to stabilize the country before elections planned for January, still has few clues as to who they are.

"Either they are foreigners so you don't hear anything about them or they are Iraqis and their families just keep quiet out of fear of being arrested," said Ghassan al-Attiyah, executive director of the Iraq Foundation for Development and Democracy.
