A new MO has been isolated in suicide bombers after the failed assassination of Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Nayef. The suicide bomber had hidden the explosives in his anal cavity, with it presumably set off by some form of remote control (since the bomber was in a crowd at the time), and while the attempt failed it has raised alarms in aviation security.

Smuggling items in body cavities is not new, though this is the first time that it has been known to be used in suicide bombing, and while (no matter how big the ass) it might not be a mass casualty device the amount of explosive that can be carried makes it perfect for assassination of fuselage penetration.
