As you may have heard, a series of suicide bombings occurred in Iraq earlier today, killing at least 72 people. Planned by Al Qaeda, the attacks were "carried out" (if you can call it that) by two mentally-disabled women at two of Baghdad's pet markets... and the bombs were detonated by remote control. It's not yet known whether the women fully understood the situation they were put into, but we think it's pretty safe to say the answer is "no". [Reuters, SF Chronicle]
