Innocent cell calls can trigger bombs

A Thai minister is warning people in the Muslim-dominated southern provinces of Thailand that Islamic militants who want to use cellphones as bomb-detonators, may get around a new cell phone registry deterrent system by getting innocent people to make the call.

They could call a random number, hang up, then wire their handset to the bomb. "If someone returned to the call, the bomb would blow up and authorities would trace the call to an innocent person"
