CHILD SUICIDE BOMBERS STORM NIGERIA

‘Alarming’ rise in Boko Haram child suicide bombers

An “alarming” number of children in Africa, most of them girls, have been used as suicide bombers by Boko Haram in 2017, according to UNICEF.

In the countries fighting Boko Haram in the Lake Chad region – Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon and Chad – 27 children have been used in suicide attacks by the armed group in the first three months of the year, UNICEF said in a report and statement.

One 16-year-old girl from Chad lost her legs after being drugged and forced by Boko Haram to take part in an attempted suicide attack on a crowded market, according to the report.
