Boko Haram's Use of Child Suicide Bombers

Hosted by

UNICEF reports that children are now objects of fear in Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad, because of a ten-fold increase in their use as bombers by the extremist group Boko Haram. After one young woman was freed, she told her mother she'd been trained as a suicide bomber, the mother was so afraid she turned her daughter into the military. John Campbell is a former US Ambassador to Nigeria. He's now senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and author of Nigeria: Dancing on the Brink.
