Chilling picture shows female Isil fighter holding child moments before detonating suicide vest
At first sight the picture appears to show a mother cradling her young child as she flees an Islamic State-held area of Mosul.
But a closer look reveals she is holding a trigger., which she will pull seconds later.
An Iraqi TV station captured the moment before a suspected female Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) suicide bomber blew herself – and the baby – up near Iraqi troops.
She had apparently tried to detonate an explosives vest hidden under her hijab as she passed the soldiers, but it failed to go off until she had walked some distance away, a cameraman for al-Mawsleya TV said.
