Islamic State fighters reportedly using cows strapped with bombs for their suicide missions
Islamic State militants in Iraq used cows strapped with explosive vests in a recent bombing operation, according to a New York Times report published on Wednesday.
At least two cows were seen with explosive vests in the south eastern village of Al Islah, Iraq, where they were then remotely detonated when they were close to homes, a provincial police commander said, according to The Times. The cows, which fetch a price of around $US1,200, were killed and homes were damaged. No humans were reportedly harmed in the incident.
