The dramatic moment that an ISIS child suicide bomber ‘aged 12 or 13’ is stripped of his explosive belt by Iraqi police before they detonate it as terrorists use child bombers in horrifying new tactic
Detained: An ISIS child suicide bomber ‘aged between 12 and 13’ was thwarted in his attempt to detonate an explosives belt after being arrested by security forces in Iraq
Taken away: The boy was ushered into a nearby vehicle by security services and led away
The boy was reportedly detained in Kirkuk (pictured main), north of Baghdad, less than 24 hours after a child suicide bomber killed at least 51 people and injured 100 more at a wedding party in Turkey. His arrest followed two other suicide bomb attacks in Kirkuk hours earlier.
Three people were injured in one while in another there were no casualties. The Kurdish media group Rudaw revealed today that the apprehended suspect was stripped of the explosives belt (left) before being led away. The belt was later detonated safely.
