Would-be suicide bomber's husband wanted for 40 murders

'Covered from head to toe in a jet-black abaya, the traditional Arabic dress for women, Raniya smiled with childish delight as she recalled the words of her husband, al-Qaeda operative who investigators say is wanted for 40 murders, most of them beheadings.

Raniya, who said she dreamed of being a doctor but married at 14 at the insistence of her apparently financially strapped mother, spoke softly about her ordeal that she said included drugging and detention, before the media spotlight. I was trying to go to my mother and leave the vest with her or ask her to inform the police,” she insisted.'
