Wife Says Husband-Bomber Is a Martyr

ISTANBUL, TURKEY - A Jordanian doctor-turned-suicide bomber who killed seven CIA employees at a base in Afghanistan is regarded by his family as a martyr in a holy war against the United States, his wife said Thursday.

Covered in a black chador, Defne Bayrak, the Turkish wife of bomber Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, lauded her husband's Dec. 30 attack to Turkish journalists in Istanbul. "I am proud of him. My husband has carried out a great operation in such a war. May God accept his martyrdom," Bayrak told the
Dogan news agency.
