Afghan Girl Wearing Suicide Jacket Arrested

By Media Monitor Desk

Kabul: A young Afghan girl has been detained wearing a suicide vest in southern Afghanistan, media reported on Tuesday.

She was held on Sunday night in Helmand province, as she tried to carry out an attack on border police, an interior ministry spokesman told the media.

The girl, reported to be as young as eight and thought to be the sister of a prominent Taliban commander, is said to be in a state of shock and confusion.

Police told the media she was encouraged to carry out the attack by her brother.

According to interior ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi, one of the Afghan soldiers spotted the girl wearing a suicide jacket.
