Al Qaeda: Next up - Sexy Bombers...

I'm telling you AQ is getting hard up - they're resorting to using female bombers.

This just in:

In the Philippines, they have been labelled "sexy bombers" and they are believed to be the latest weapon from the Islamic terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah.

Police from the volatile southern province of Mindanao are taking seriously the possibility that women have been trained and are ready to blow themselves up in the name of Islam. According to information given to intelligence services, there are at least 10 potential female suicide bombers ready to carry out attacks.

Several cities in Mindanao, the southernmost island of the archipelago which is home to 4.5 million Muslims, would be among their potential targets.

The island is the scene of an ongoing secessionist battle being fought by Islamic separatists for the past 30 years. Jemaah Islamiyah is a South-east Asian militant Islamic organisation based on the radical ideology of the Indonesian movement, Darul Islam, and committed to establishing a caliphate in the region.

In the past, Jemaah Islamiyah have not used women to carry out suicide attacks.
