Based on the UN report, the terrorist had recruited at least eight innocent pupils to carry out suicide bombing during 2011 while another 1,300 children had been killed as result of terror attacks by the Taliban kin various regions of the country and the report also revealed the fact that these children were recruited mostly by the insurgent Taliban who pursued brain washing on them in the religious schools financially supported by extremist and fundamentalist Islamic organizations same as Tora Bora Front, Jamt Sunnat wal Dauat, Salafis, Latif Mansor terror network, Haqqani terror organization and Hezbe Islami (Islamic party) has also been accused by the UN that the party was engaged in  such activities.
