All eggs (terrorists) in one basket (bus)? [CNN edition]

This was reported on CNN website today

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — Fourteen suspected terrorists died Tuesday night when the bus they rigged with explosives blew up prematurely, police said.

The explosion occurred as the suspects were riding the bus in the province of Kunduz, said police chief Abdul Raziq Yaqobi.

Yaqobi said the suspects wanted to attack Afghan police or foreign soldiers.

Who comes with such stories and how could it make it to the website of CNN without any editing or inquiry? The question arises that why would you need fourteen terrorists (probably all bomb riggers) riding to the destination in a single bus? The driver could have  easily picked up innocent passengers if an illusion of a genuine passenger bus was required. Why would 14 semi trained terrorists needed to be riding in a single suicide mission? Like military (US or Pak)  or Intelligence Agencies, terrorists can also be stupid but this is taking it too far.

Must be the work of non state actors or Xe (formerly known as Blackwater).
