BAGHDAD — An Iraqi man told authorities he killed his 19-year-old daughter out of shame after he discovered al-Qaeda had recruited her as a suicide bomber, a police spokesman said Friday.

The killing of the young woman was discovered when security forces, searching for her on suspicion she had ties to al-Qaeda, raided her father's home Thursday outside the former Sunni-insurgent stronghold of Baqouba, 35 miles (60 kilometers) northeast of Baghdad, said Maj. Ghalib al-Karkhi, a police spokesman in Diyala province.
