'Bits of burka' found at bomb site

Bits of burka. Bits of Burka? Once again, a pious, religious Muslim has detonated themselves in the name of Allah. This time they killed two children. Praise be to Allah.

Tha authorities are "investigating if the attack was committed by a woman". Woman or cross dressing man, it was surely committed by a Muslim, in this case against other Muslims.
And the war goes on.

TWO children were killed when a suicide attacker believed to have been a woman blew herself up in a crowded area of western Herat city this morning, a senior police official said.
A 10-year-old boy and a girl aged seven were killed in the attack. Another young girl, a woman and an elderly man were wounded in the attack, said Ikramuddin Yarwar, police commander in western Afghanistan.

He said pieces of blue cloth that looked like they had been part of a burka, the all-covering article of clothing worn by many Afghan women, had been scattered around the site of the blast.

"Some pieces of burka were seen at the site, so we are investigating if the attack was committed by a woman," he said.

In other violence, the interior ministry said gunmen opened fire in a mosque in Jawzjan province on Friday, killing five men and wounding another two.

Six men had been arrested in relation to the incident, the ministry said in a statement.
Afghanistan is battling a resurgent Taliban that has expanded its footprint across the country in recent months.

An apparent campaign of suicide bombings has targeted military installations and personnel, most recently in Kabul on Thursday when an enormous car bomb blew up in Kabul, killing six Italian soldiers and 10 civilians.
