Inside the mind of a suicide bomber

Taliban in Afghanistan vows to launch more attacks in hopes of disrupting upcoming elections.

     

    The Taliban in Afghanistan has threatened to disrupt parliamentary elections planned for next week, by launching more suicide attacks.

    The United Nations has said that suicide bombers were responsible for the vast majority of civilian deaths in the country.

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton travelled to northern Afghanistan and met some of the men who are prepared to be part of that deadly plan.

    Pacha Khan, a 25-year-old Taliban fighter from Logar in Afghanistan, has announced that he is ready to become a suicide bomber.

    "God willing, our leaders have prepared everything for me, I am now waiting for my orders," he said
