Belgian Woman Iraqi suicidebomber

Ohh, the joys of globalization and muticulturalism. Muriel Degauque, who grew up near the industrial city of Charleroi, entered Iraq from Syria last month and detonated explosives strapped to her body in a failed attack against U.S. troops. Her mother, Liliane Degauque, told Belgian TV networks that her daughter was "so nice" — but began to change when she married an Algerian man and turned to Islamic fundamentalism. The good question is: where is her husband? Anyone looking for him? There is no mention of him at all in this story.

Her husband was Issam Goris who was from Morocco. He was killed in Iraq in another incident I guess.

I heard on NPR that he was killed the same day, shot before he could set off a bomb he had on.
