When an 8-year-old was sent on suicide mission
(The Times of India, June 21, 2011 Tuesday)

An eight-year-old girl was allegedly kidnapped by militants who forced her to wear a suicide vest to attack security forces. Suhana, a class 3 student, said she was kidnapped from Peshawar on Sunday by two women and a man. “They asked me to come close to them and then placed a handkerchief on my face and I fell unconscious,” she revealed. Her abductors then forced her to wear an explosive vest and took her to a security check-post in Balambat area of Lower Du district. “They asked me to get close to the soldiers and sent me towards the check-post to carry out a suicide attack. I ran towards the check-post and raised an alarm,” Suhana said. Alert security forces rescued the girl and removed her.

How clear it is to see the face of terrorism, which has all the facets of horror. Even a small child is not spared!
