A 12 year-old girl bomber warned authorities of an army of Taliban-trained female suicide bombers ready to carry out attacks.
The Times of India reported:
Islamabad: Taliban have set up all women suicide squads to carry out deadly terror mission on both sides of the Afghan-Pak border, a captured 12-year-old girl has revealed.
Meena Gul, trained to be a ‘human bomb’ was apprehended from the Munda area, in Dir close to the Afghan border in January, and her disclosures have sent shivers down the spine of Pakistani security establishment. Gul said that women suicide bombers were trained for their deadly task in small cells on both sides of the porous border and were dispatched to their missions with a sermon, “God will reward you with a place in heaven”.
The 12-year-old Afghan girl was quoted by the Express Tribune as having told the police that she trained in a group which was headed by her sister-in-law Zainab and she battled Pakistani troops dressed as a man. She claimed that her younger sister blew herself up in a suicide attack in Afghanistan, but she had managed to escape as she was too scared to die.
It should be noted that these are the same people that Obama continues to extend a hand to in a gesture of goodwill.
