The thousand tonnes of TNT used by the bomber not only demolished our workplace
The blast was caused by a suicide bomber driving a truck bomb. The vehicle has been identified as a large 2002 flatbed Kamaz (manufactured in Eastern Europe and part of the former Iraqi establishment’s fleet). Investigators in Iraq suspected the bomb was made from old munitions, including a single 500-pound aerial bomb, from Iraq’s pre-war arsenal.
TNT equivalent, maybe.
Pendantry perhaps, but when the UN gets this sorta stuff wrong then we’ve difficulties with the UN’s ability to do stuff, right?
