This is 14-year-old Usaid Barho, from Syria, the boy who volunteered to be a suicide bomber for ISIS as he saw it to be the only way to escape them.
“I raised my hand to be a suicide bomber,” said Usaid, “If I were a fighter and tried to surrender to security forces they might kill me, with my gun in my hand.”
Usaid never had any intention of harming anyone, and decided that when he reached his target he would show his bomb vest to guards in hope that they would disarm it and deliver him to safety.
Fortunately they did just that and managed to capture the incredible moment on camera.
Apparently Usaid was told that his mother would be raped by Shi’ite Muslims if he did not fight and that thousands of other children had been convinced to join the militant group by similar means.
He said: “They seduced us to join the caliphate. They planted the idea that Shi’ites are infidels and we had to kill them.”
