Christian responsible for suicide bombing in Philippines?

Catholic World News - August 06, 2010

In a break from a familiar pattern, authorities in the Philippines suspect that a Christian may have been the suicide bomber struck at an airport in the Mindanao province yesterday. Authorities have ruled out involvement by the Islamic separatist group Abu Sayyaf. “But AsiaNews sources emphasize that the first suicide bomber in the Philippines may actually be a victim himself. Police and Army today revealed that the bomber may have been carrying the bomb without knowing it.”

    Wait a minute. If he was carrying the bomb without knowing it, then how can he be said to have committed suicide?
