From Donkey-based rocket launchers to Dog Bombs
The Australian: Explosives attached to a dog [May 27, 2005]
: "IRAQ insurgents attached explosives to a dog today in a bid to bomb a military convoy near the northern oil centre of Kirkuk but the animal was the only casualty, police said.
The insurgents wrapped an explosive belt around the dog's body and detonated it as the convoy passed through Dakuk, 40km south of Kirkuk, the town's police chief Colonel Mohammed Barzaji said.
'The dog was torn apart by the explosion which caused neither injury among the soldiers nor any damage,' said Barzaji, adding that the bomb had been detonated outside a Shiite mosque.
'Eight suspects have been detained,' he said.
It is not the first time that animals have been used in insurgent attacks. In 2003, donkey carts were used to conceal makeshift multiple rocket launchers in a flurry of attacks in Baghdad."
