Children ‘blow themselves up’ in suicide bomber game
Im not surprised.
Children’s games mimic what they see. If the children see Cowboys and Indians on TV they will shoot each other in Cowboys and Indians games. If they see suicide bombings on TV they will blow each other up in Suicide Bombing games.
Children play, and their play often copies what they see around them.
In Northern Ireland at the height of the Troubles journalists paid children to throw rocks at a burned out bus.
This is probably something along the same lines.
