In a SISMI Report found on NEIN, 200 'Explosive Briefcases' built by experts could be in the hands of terrorists associated with Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, the report also states the hunt has begun in an effort to locate and confiscate this new threat before they can be used in terrorist attacks.
 



Two hundred briefcases filled with explosive. All put together in exactly the same way, by expert hands. Sophisticated in their contrivance, in their concealment of the sticks of TNT inside the double bottom of the briefcases, even as to their potential "alternative" use, depending upon the situation and the unexpected to be dealt with (detonation by remote control or by a self-timer). These briefcases--which are discussed in a very recent SISMI [Intelligence and Military Security Service] report--are said to be available to the guerrillas. .

At the same time, the insurgency's tactics seem to be getting bolder. On Thursday morning, a man dressed in a crisply ironed police uniform walked up to a checkpoint in the Rashid neighborhood of Baghdad carrying a black Samsonite briefcase and blew himself up. Four people were killed, including a farmer driving to market in a pickup truck full of eggplants.

"The bomb was packed with ball bearings and meant to kill a lot of people," said Col. Steve Lanza of the Army. "This could have been a lot worse."

This snippet is the only reference to a briefcase in a longer article describing the attacks of the day, the report does not identify where the bomb was with regards to this attacker so there is a possibility it could have been the briefcase.
