Yahoo! News quotes Africa Center Director J. Peter Pham on Boko Haram’s use of abducted girls to carry out terror attacks:
Peter Pham, director of the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council, said the Islamist insurgents have used female suicide bombers in the past, but the recent attacks mark a “ratcheting up” of their bombing campaign with children, NBC News reported.
“Young women who are abducted, it has been suggested that they might be used as wives. But it’s certainly possible they could be used as bombers,” he told the news site.
