Israeli police recently arrested a Palestinian whose suicide-bomb belt was leaking an acidic substance. Police caught the would-be terrorist in a central Israeli city after they spotted him running frantically. When security forces realized a phosphorous material had leaked from his belt, severely burning his stomach, the Palestinian was rushed to a nearby hospital. Police believe the material was meant to intensify the impact of the bomb.
