Terrorists in Gaza aren't the only ones who experience “work accidents” when constructing bombs. A terrorist in Tunisia blew himself up Saturday, as he was building a bomb in a suburb of the capital city of Tunis.

The man's pregnant wife was badly injured in the blast as well.

Police are attempting to identify the dead terrorist, but it is likely he was affiliated with Al Qaeda, which has been seeking to overthrow the current government. The terror group had carried out many attacks in Tunisia in recent months.

In another recent incident, police arrested an Islamic extremist on Friday after he blew his hands off while handling explosives. Last week, a bomb exploded under an unmarked police car. No one was injured in the attack.
