BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:03 A.M.) – A child found with an explosive belt wrapped around his body had the device safely removed by an anti-ISIS Iraqi fighter.

Families fleeing the intense fighting between ISIS and the Iraqi forces in the northern city of Mosul noticed a child alone, in which they notified the Iraqi Army once reaching the safety of a government controlled checkpoint.

The boy would not speak on who his family is or reveal his name, kept pointing towards his stomach when being spoken to.

It was revealed that an ISIS fighter, who was only known to the boy as Amo, a term to refer to older men as an uncle as a sign of respect, had given the boy the device to carry out a suicide mission against Iraqi soldiers.
