Majority of Boko Haram’s ‘suicide bombers’ are actually women and children, study finds

The majority of suicide bombers that terrorist group Boko Haram uses to kill innocent civilians are women and children, a study has revealed.

Analyzing 434 suicide bombings carried by the Nigeria-based group since 2011, researchers at the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point and Yale University found that at least 244 of the gender identifiable 338 attacks were carried out by women.

In just 2017 alone, Boko Haram has already sent 80 women to their deaths.
