The little suicide bomber that couldn't

Breaking news from Israel that an attempted suicide bombing was aborted by the bomber himself, with the backpack containing the bomb discarded in a dumpster. Ynet news reports that it unclear if the bomber changed his mind, or if the bomb failed to detonate, or if some other reason - perhaps the extensive security measures underway - caused the plot to be abandoned.

Police and security forces had advance information on the plot and operated extensively to foil it. The would-be bomber was captured, along with some of his confederates.
