Weep for the children

In an appalling attack Boko Haram appears to have attacked using a remotely detonated bomb strapped to a 9 year old girl who was reported not to fully realise what was going on. The press are struggling for the correct language. No, it is not 'suicide bomber', nor is it 'girl bomber'. The correct term is 'girl bomb'. The memory of a child should not be tainted by the malevolent motives or amoral code of those who murdered her.
