He’s a typical teenager.
Reports of a young ISIS suicide bomber went out in one of the latest development in the crackdown against ISIS in Iraq.
The recruitee, named Talha Asmal, 17, was said to be a typical teenager in his hometown, Dewsbury. The community is said to be “devasted” by the news, according to BBC.
11 people were reportedly killed in a suicide bombing attack near Baghdad on Saturday. Four people were said to be responsible for the attack and one of them was Asmal, known as Abu Yusuf al-Britani.
Another teenager was responsible for another attack in 2005 on a London bus. Hasib Hussein was 18 then, making Asmal the youngest suicide bomber from the U.K.
