Al Qaeda preparing British women bombers?
London: Al Qaeda is trying to recruit women to carry out suicide bombings in the United Kingdom.
According to British lawmakers, al Qaeda is using extremist websites to radicalise angels of death.
In their chilling report, the Commons Home Affairs Committee says it has heard evidence the terror group is "specifically launching and targeting women for violent acts".
According to The Sun, it is already a deadly tactic in the Middle East, where growing numbers of Palestinian women are volunteering for suicide missions against Israel.
The MPs` report comes days after four Islamic extremists admitted plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange.
The report says big internet firms must do more to shut websites that encourage violent extremism.
Home Secretary Theresa May has already launched a crackdown on recruiting websites used by extremists, as a purge on fanatics in mosques and colleges has resulted in the web being increasingly used to brainwash supporters.
