Electromagnetic Pulse Bombs release electro magnetic pulses, that last for something like a nanosecond. Their potential was first discovered with the
use of a nuclear weapon, in which an electromagnetic pulse occured. They don't naturally do any damage to humans, or at least not any that I'm
aware of. However, it induces severely heavy currents within circuitry, heating them up to the point where they instantly "fry"; which could,
theoretically, burn or kill someone nearby to the circuitry being "fried". Other than that, I don't see any other human effects.
That is, unless, the electromagnetic pulse came from a nuclear weapon; and the people were killed by the nuclear weapon. I actually read that E-bombs
can affect landmasses the size of the entire United States if deployed properly. Pretty scary.
