"All I was thinking was that I had to detonate myself near as many people as possible. When I decided it was the right time, it was a moment of happiness for me," said 14-year-old Umar Fidai. "I thought that there would be a little bit of pain, but then I would be in heaven." Umar did not make it to paradise. Instead, we find him in custody. His left arm is missing, his right arm entirely strapped up, and there are bandages around his torso.

In early April two teenage boys carried out a suicide bomb attack in a Sufi shrine in Pakistan. One of them survived after the explosives in his jacket failed to detonate properly. He tells the BBC of how he was recruited by the Taliban and found himself preparing to die while killing other people in the hope of going to paradise.
