Baghdad, 6 May (AKI) - Al-Qaeda has used 6,000 suicide bombers in Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein, according to records discovered in a terrorist training camp in Diyala, northeast of Baghdad.
A spokesman for the local Sunni tribal militias, Sheikh Shaker al-Shamri, told the Iraqi newspaper al-Sabah, his men entered an al-Qaeda training camp for female suicide bombers near Baaquba.
In the camp they found correspondence belonging to a group of leaders from the terrorist organisation that calculated the suicide attacks conducted by the group since 2003.
The majority of the 6,000 suicide bombers used by al-Qaeda until now are Arab and Afghan citizens, not Iraqis. The documents confirmed claims made by Iraqi secret services.
According to the document many young people, in particular 15 women were recruited to carry out attacks in the Sunni province.
