KHAR, Pakistan A burqa-clad female suicide bomber in Pakistan lobbed hand grenades, then detonated her explosive belt among a crowd at an aid center Saturday, killing at least 45 people in militants' latest strike against the authorities' control over the key tribal region bordering Afghanistan.
Police believed it was the first time Islamic militants have sent a woman to carry out a suicide attack in Pakistan, where the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan against al-Qaida and the Taliban insurgents continues to spill over despite Islamabad's repeated claims of victory on its side of the porous border.
The bomber, dressed in the head-to-toe burqa robes that women commonly wear Pakistan and Afghanistan, was challenged by police at a check point, officials said.
She then charged toward a group of 300 people lined up outside the food aid distribution center in the town of Khar, tossing two hand grenades before blowing herself up. . . .

Did she pat her head down first?
Horrible. And her victims were probably all Muslims, too. WHen are these people going to wake up to the fact that their own religion is a death cult?
Apparently, the TSA procedure of allowing these burqa clad zombies to ‘pat themselves’ down has not made it to Pakistan, otherwise this would have been prevented. /s
Where is the feminist outrage? Oh, that’s only when Christian women blow themselves and dozens of others up?
“Police believed it was the first time Islamic militants have sent a woman to carry out a suicide attack in Pakistan.”
Odd. Usually the manly MEN of that cult sacrifice their CHILDREN, first. Maybe they made an exception, it being Christmas and all...
Was there enough intact to know for sure.. the Islamists (political Islam, Sharia law, jihad advocates) demand we accept burqas for a reason -- and it ain't peaceful.
Where is the feminist outrage?

The fems are FOR this.
At last, women in Pakistan and other glorious countries in this part of the world are being allowed to work at previously all male jobs.
Next they will be demanding equal pay, as the guys get a couple of goats when they ‘go to meet the virgins’.
Are we sure it was a woman and not some Cross Dressing fool?
Tariq Khan and another local official, Sohail Khan, said an examination of the human remains has confirmed the bomber was a woman.
Hasan Askari Rizvi, a Lahore-based security and political analyst, said the suicide bombing appeared to be the first carried out by a woman in Pakistan.
“It is no surprise. They can use a woman, a child or whatever,” Rizvi said. “Human life is not important to them, only the objective they are pursuing” of undermining state power, he added.
Male suicide bombers often don the burqa an Islamic dress that also covers the woman’s face as a disguise. In 2007, officials initially claimed Pakistan’s first female suicide bomber had killed 14 people in the northwest town of Bannu but the attacker was later identified as a man. Islamic militants in Iraq have used women suicide bombers several times, since women in their all-enveloping robes are seen as able to pass more easily through security, especially since male security officers are often hesitant to search women.
It's only on display when a pro-choice woman chooses not to have an abortion.
I suppose you’re right. The fems must be really hot for those virgins.
At the moment of death they realize the paradise they were promised is really Hell.
I really hope all her victims were moslem. Their self annihilation saves us some work.
they get midget servants.....less than 72 I believe.
thinking the same thing - I read somewhere that Arafat donned a burka when he had to flee Jordan (the King there had a crawful of the “Palestinians” -— so, on to start a civil war in Lebanon.
Killing innocent civilians in other places, with less muslim casualties is apparently not an affront to all humanity.
Expect the same thing to happen at a shopping center, airport or sporting event here. It’s just a matter of time.
Well, the secret is to treat the burqa exactly like we treat the firearm. And a burqa is harder to conceal than a firearm. ;^)
It took almost a week for the White House to comment on the shooting at the Little Rock recruiting center. They were 'saddened'. The last time they were 'outraged' was when the abortion doctor was murdered. That only took an hour or so on a Sunday. This is the World Food Program, a division of the United Nations. It demands an immediate response, unlike when our Soldiers, Sailors or Marines die.
Strip it down, oil it and then pump some lead through it?
