Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad praised his country's ability to recruit "hundreds of suicide bombers a day," saying "suicide is an invincible weapon."


Ahmadinejad made the comments during a visit to a site south Iran used to prepare suicide bombers during the Iraq-Iran war, Iranian state television reported.


He praised Hizbullah fighters for their suicidal spirit during last summer's confrontation with Israel.


Iran recruited thousands of suicide bombers, many of whom were children, and sent them to the frontline to face Saddam Hussein's army.


"Suicide bombers in this land showed us the way, and they enlighten our future," he said.


The Iranian president said the will to commit suicide was "one of the best ways of life."
