An al-Qaeda cell composed of children under the age of 16, known as “Children of Paradise”, is believed to be responsible for a growing number of attacks in Iraq.
Statistics from Sunni militias loyal to the government estimate 60 recent attacks have been carried out by these young people who have been brain-washed by al-Qaeda terrorists based in villages along the Tigris River.
According to sources from the Awakening Council or US-backed Sunni tribal militias, quoted in the Arab newspaper al-Hayat, the group of aspiring suicide bombers are extending their range and have moved into the area of Tarimiya, north of Baghdad.
They are also reportedly operating in other areas in the Sunni province of Diyala and in the eastern part of the capital.
The Iraqi army has noted a rise in attacks carried out by children or women from 2007 to 2008.
In the last year they are believed to have carried out at least 16 suicide attacks and 200 other bomb attacks.
