The First “Western, White, Woman Suicide” Bomber

Wednesday, November 30, 2005  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

From tomorrow’s Times of London:

Western white woman is suicide bomber
By Anthony Browne, Brussels Correspondent

MIREILLE, who was born in Belgium to a white, middle-class Christian family, blew herself to pieces last month in a suicide attack against American troops near Baghdad.
In one of the most extraordinary tales of Islamic radicalization, she is thought to be the first white Western woman to carry out a suicide bombing.

Belgian investigators, who arrested 14 people associated with her, are keeping the 38-year-old woman’s true identity secret, but details have started to emerge. She was from the southern Belgian town of Charleroi, married to a Moroccan and converted to an extreme form of Islam.
