3 Female Suicide Bombers Strike Iraqi Pilgrims
Al-Qaeda is desperate.
The terror group again used women to pull off their evil attacks in Baghdad today.
The BBC reported:
Twenty-five people have been killed and about 52 wounded in suicide attacks against pilgrims in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, police say.
The three attacks, carried out by women, targeted Shia Muslims heading for the Kadhimiya shrine in the north of the city for annual ceremonies.
The bombers struck as pilgrim convoys passed through the Karrada district.
In 2005, at least 1,000 people were killed in a bridge stampede caused by rumors of a suicide bomber in Baghdad during the Kazimiyah pilgrimage.
Since 2003, Al-Qaeda has used over 6,000 suicide bombers in Iraq. A majority (90%) of the 6,000 suicide bombers used by al-Qaeda until now are Arab and Afghan citizens.
Al-Qaeda is using more women to carry out the attacks this year. Two mentally disabled women were used in February attacks that killed more than 70 Iraqis.
