Suicide Bomber Threat Mitigation
The Suicide Bomber Threat to Hotels
Most security experts will tell you that a large hotel is a prime "soft" terrorist target. Suicide bombing is one of the most deadly and terrifying tactics that terrorists are using against hotels and other soft civilian targets worldwide. Suicide bombers often increase the effectiveness of their devices by adding nails, nuts and bolts or similar items to act as lethal shrapnel. (Some prefer to use the term "homicide bombing", rather than "suicide bombing", to emphasis that the primary objective of such acts is to commit mass murder).
