In a separate prison interview with The Associated Press, with interrogators nearby, the woman said she was part of a plot in which young women were raped and then sent to her for matronly advice. She said she would try to persuade the victims to become suicide bombers as their only escape from the shame and to reclaim their honor.
The suspect, 50-year-old Samira Ahmed Jassim – who said her code name was “The Mother of Believers” – has given unusual firsthand descriptions of the possible workings behind last year’s spike in attacks by women bombers. Not so much strange and scary and pretty sick too. I hope this woman rots in prison for many years.
