Women and militancy

Source: Dawn

THE attack took place in one of the busiest areas of Istanbul. On Jan 6, 2015 a woman in a niqab blew herself up at a police station in Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet district, killing one officer and injuring another. So far, it is not known which group was responsible or who the woman was. Witnesses said she spoke in English with a heavy accent but little else is known about her — only that she was one of an increasing number of women joining militant organisations and being used to carry out terror attacks.
