The UK Guardian has a story about how the Afghanistan Taliban has been using children as murder suicide. In this particular case, the boy was given the option of having his hand cut off or doing something for the greater glory. He took the second option, however, Noor, despite the fact that he had been a thief is basically a good boy. He took off the suicide belt and threw it away. He then approached the base and provided information on the Taliban leaders. This took a lot of courage from young Noor.
Please read the whol article because it highlights the fact that the Taliban and their ilk are exploiters and in their desparation they have turned to tricking children into becoming murder-suicide bombers.
