Teen suicide bomber kills 20 at Pakistan army centre

Post by Strawberry on Thu Feb 10, 2011 1:43 am

(Reuters) - A boy in a school uniform blew himself up at a Pakistani army recruitment centre on Thursday, killing 20 cadets, officials said, in an attack that challenges government assertions that crackdowns have weakened militants.

Pakistan's army has carried out a series of offensives against al Qaeda-linked Taliban insurgents. But the operations in lawless tribal areas along the Afghan border have failed to break the resolve of Taliban fighters determined to destabilise the U.S.-backed government.

The brazen bombing on Thursday in the northwestern town of Mardan suggested militants are regrouping after a lull in major attacks.

it is horrible to think of children being used in this way. it used to happen in Ireland that children would lure British troops in the direction of ambushes too. I was also once offered a sandwich to find it had shards of glass hidden in it

It has been mentioned before as well that terrorist groups in the west might start using school girls as suicide bombers. It mostly gets dismissed as scaremongering when it's mentioned though.
