(London Daily Mail) A photograph has emerged of a Mosul woman cradling her baby as she seemingly tries to escape the fighting that has ravaged her city.
However on further inspection it becomes apparent the Burka clad woman is also holding a detonator.
The picture was taken moments before the suicide bomber blew herself up, with her baby in her arms, as she walked past Iraqi troops.
