The sooner we get on with the job of killing jihadis, the sooner we won't see little girls sacrificed for the glories of the caliphate-to-be:

A bomb strapped to a girl aged around 10 years old exploded in a busy market place in the Nigerian city of Maiduguri on Saturday, killing at least 16 people and injuring more than 20, security sources said.

Odds are, it was set off remotely, I imagine.

Or was that little girl somehow angry about that French magazine?

Heck, perhaps she is worried that the Miss World pageant might come to Nigeria again.

UPDATE: Strategypage writes about female suicide bombers and female terrorists generally.

No word on this particular attack, but others have been nearly as young but not set off remotely even though that is not uncommon.
