Pakistani Taliban Strap Suicide Vest To Nine-Year-Old Girl, Sent To Blow Up Police Checkpoint…

Evil personified.
(VOA News) — In the Lower Dir tribal area, police Monday said they have detained a 9-year-old girl who was wearing a suicide vest and told to blow up a security checkpoint.
The young girl told reporters at a news conference that she was abducted from the northwestern city of Peshawar on Saturday. She said her captors strapped the bomb on her and dropped her off at the checkpoint near Timergarah, the main town in Lower Dir. Police say the girl was wearing eight kilograms of explosives when she was taken into custody.
Authorities are trying to confirm the girl’s story and search for her captors.
Suicide bombings carried out by young girls or women are extremely rare in Pakistan.
