#3 Sorry, Raj, it was Door #2.
A Jordanian airport security guard was killed Thursday at Amman's international airport when a piece of ordnance taken from Iraq exploded while the bag of a Japanese journalist was being searched, officials said. Edwan said a Japanese journalist "who had come from Baghdad was returning home via Cairo when the security guard asked him to open his bag." He added that when the guard saw a "piece of metal, the journalist told him it was a souvenir from the war in Iraq. The officer was testing the piece and it exploded, killing him instantly and injured three others."
Raj, thank you for playing "What's In Your Bag?".

#4 The officer was testing the piece and it exploded, killing him instantly and injured three others.

I'm kinda wondering how the security guard "tested" the piece.....

"Khalid, please hand me that hammer. I need to check this to make sure it's okay."
