Abstract: ON September 28, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive belt in the border town of Tal Afar, 420 km northwest of Baghdad, killing six people and wounding 35. With the increasing level of violence in Iraq, such an incident would hardly attract a lot of attention, especially given the comparatively small number of casualties. However, in this case there is an alarming new twist – the suicide bomber was a woman. This tactical shift is highly significant, and has the potential of intensifying the Iraqi insurgency.
