Girl carrying explosives blown up in Baghdad 'suicide attack' | World news | guardian.co.uk

The brave lads of the insurgency are now using eight year old little girls as remote control "suicide" bombers.

A young girl carrying explosives that killed her, an Iraqi captain and injured four soldiers was blown up by remote control, officials said today.

The incident happened as she approached an Iraqi command post in Youssifiyah, south Baghdad, earlier this morning.

Iraqi army Lieutenant Ahmed Ali confirmed that the girl, who had hidden explosives strapped to her, was the cause of the blast.

Local authorities immediately imposed a curfew in the area while US troops began searching for those responsible, he said.

"The bomber was detonated by remote control, killing Captain Wassem al-Maamouri and injuring four soldiers," Ali added.


Nothing to see here. Move along. But what about Abu Ghraib?
