Iraq insurgents used children in car bombing

By Leah     Mar 20, 2007 in World
Insurgents in Iraq detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle with two children in the back seat after US soldiers let it through a Baghdad checkpoint over the weekend.
How unfair. These children don't even know they are going to die, and they are trusting who they are with. These jerks made it through the checkpoint because there were children in the backseat....then after they made it through, the got out and started to run, and detonated it with the children in the back.
How sickening to think they could harm their children like that. It is said to be the first time they saw children used in a suicide bombing, but it really wasn't suicide if they took off.....it is more like murder!
A US defense official said the incident occurred on Sunday in Baghdad's Adhamiyah district, a mixed neighborhood adjacent to Sadr City, which is predominantly Shiite.
Officials here said they did not know who the children were or their relationship to the two adults who fled the scene. They had no information about their ages or genders.
