A woman suspected of recruiting more than 80 female suicide bombers has confessed to organising their rapes so she could later convince them martyrdom was the only way to escape the shame.
In a video released by police, she explains how she mentally prepared the women for martyrdom operations, passed them on to terrorists who provided explosives and then took the bombers to their targets.
In many parts of Iraq, including conservative Diyala, a rape victim may be shunned by her family and become an outcast in society.
