Samira Jassam

Herald Sun:

A WOMAN suspected of recruiting more than 80 female suicide bombers has confessed to organising their rapes so she could later convince them that martyrdom was the only way to escape the shame.

Samira Jassam, 51, was arrested by Iraqi police and confessed to recruiting the women and orchestrating dozens of attacks.

In a video confession, she explained how she had mentally prepared the women for martyrdom operations, passed them on to terrorists who provided explosives, and then took the bombers to their targets.

There’s a youtube video which claims to be taken from al-Jazeera. (No speakers on this computer!).

al-Jazeera article:

In an interview with the Associated Press news agency, Jassim said she helped to plan rapes of young women in Diyala and then stepped in to persuade the victims to become suicide bombers as their only escape from the shame.
