Iraq’s Teenage Suicide Bomber

Suicide bombers are typically the instruments, not the victims, of Islamic fanaticism, but this is probably an exception: The bomber who killed four people at a security checkpoint today in Iraq was a 13-year-old girl. Her victims were members of the Sunni Muslim “Awakening” councils, and 15 additional civilians were wounded. In two separate attacks in Baghdad, 31 people were killed, making today the deadliest day in the capital in months.
