A 15 year-old teenage girl, handcuffed to an iron railing, patiently waits as an Iraqi explosives expert cuts the trigger cords on a suicide vest strapped to her body.
The footage originates from an August incident when police found Rania Ibrahim Mutlib in a side road in Baquba, north of Baghdad, having failed to detonate her charge. The girl claimed that she had been drugged and did not wish to become the 16th teenage girl bomber said to have struck in the past year. Her husband, Mohammed Hussein Mohammed Sameet, 24-years-old, bade her farewell as she dressed that morning. Police have been given metal detectors to scan women because women would pass through checkpoints without being searched since Islam forbids a man to frisk a woman. Young girls are the perfect weapon.
