This story is so hard to believe that I won't be surprised if it will be disproved in a few days. Yet if it's true, then I was wrong thinking that the Sunni insurgents in Iraq can no longer surprise anybody even if they bomb a school or detonate a nuclear bomb at the center of Baghdad. If the story is true, then today they did something which is... well .. I am just curious who are these people who fight for the Sunni insurgents in Iraq.
Insurgents in Iraq detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle with two children in the back seat after US soldiers let it through a Baghdad checkpoint over the weekend, a senior US military official said Tuesday.
The vehicle was stopped at the checkpoint but was allowed through when soldiers saw the children in the back, said Major General Michael Barbero of the Pentagon's Joint Staff.
"Children in the back seat lowered suspicion. We let it move through. They parked the vehicle, and the adults ran out and detonated it with the children in the back," Barbero said.

Officials here said they did not know who the children were or their relationship to the two adults who fled the scene. They had no information about their ages or genders.
