Di first question that came to my mind after reading the story in today's Observer is - what the hell was he planning on doing with so many explosives in Jamaica?
Yuh see how dem can do we Jamaicans bad, when you land a Miami and a guh through immigration how much dog come greet you and look deh now, if di explosive never go off, there is no telling what would happen. But meck it was a Jamaica...memba sey it wouldn't stop yah suh.
According to the story Orville Andrew Braham — the Jamaica-bound passenger whose bag exploded while it was being unloaded from an American Airlines flight at the Miami International Airport on Tuesday — is alleged to have concealed more than 700 ammunition primers and other parts in another piece of checked luggage.

In the affidavit filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Affell Grier said hundreds of .45 calibre ammunition primers were discovered concealed in the lining of one of Braham’s checked suitcases.
An ammunition primer is the component of a round of ammunition that initiates the explosive charge which expels a projectile from a firearm.
Grier, who is assigned to the Miami Division Squad T-8 — a counter terrorism squad with the Joint Terrorism Task Force — said the components of a disassembled ammunition reloading press were also concealed in the lining of the suitcase.
“Other components of the ammunition reloading press were found in a zippered compartment and wrapped in items of clothing concealed throughout the suitcase,” according to Grier.
An ammunition reloading press is used to assemble component parts, including ammunition primers, to create ammunition.

“When questioned further about the fact that his suitcase did indeed explode, and that ammunition primers appeared to be visible in the suitcase, he continued to deny having anything in the suitcase that could have caused the explosion,” according to Grier.
Well we glad we never get to find out what would have been the final outcome. Thank you Father.
