Afghan girl wearing suicide vest surrenders

Kabul, Jan 6 : A 10-year-old Afghan girl, who was forced to wear suicide vest and carry out an attack, surrendered to police in southern Helmand province of Afghanistan, media reports said on Monday.

"The girl turned in herself to the sixth border zone police in Khanshin district," police commander, Col. Hamidullah Siddique, told Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN).

The girl, identified as Spogmai also told reporters that her brother had been harassing her over the past few days with the allegation that she had illegitimate relations with police.

"She said last night when her brother forced her to put on the suicide vest and cross the river to reach the police post, she started crying because the water was very cold," PAN reported.

"As police heard her cries, Zahir escaped with the suicide vest and she approached the law-enforcers," the report said.

The girl accused that her father and brothers were planning a plot to get her involved in a suicide attack by accusing her of having illicit relations with police personnel.
