As the West continues to acquiesce to Islamic mores, we will see this kind of thing closer to home.
“Woman caught with bomb under burqa: official,” from AFP (thanks to Sr. Soph):
ASADABAD, Afghanistan – Afghan intelligence agents said Monday they had detained a woman hiding a bomb-filled waistcoat of the type used in Taleban suicide attacks under her all-covering burqa.
The 55-year-old woman was followed from the eastern province of Kunar after a tip-off and arrested in the town of Jalalabad, an official in Kunar’s intelligence department told AFP.
“She was carrying the suicide waistcoat for the Taleban. We had intelligence reports that she was working for the Taleban,” said the official, who asked not to be identified by name.
The woman was being questioned “to find out more about her network,” he said.
Most Afghan women still wear the burqa, which was mandatory under the 1996-2001 Taleban government, and cannot be searched by men at security checkposts.
