Just when you thought the situation in Afghanistan couldn't get any more dire, reports are surfacing about a secret Al-Qaeda camp where children as young as five are being trained to become violent martyrs. A video, posted on an underground site, shows the young boys using AK-47 rifles and bombs, as they learn how to mount horrific attacks. Mail Online has more:
Baby-faced children aim AK-47 rifles as they train for war on British troops. They are being taught about combat even if they can barely hold the lethal weapons...
British commanders in Afghanistan say Taliban fighters are increasingly using children as suicide bombers and as human shields during battles.
Footage shows the children being indoctrinated at the camp, located in North Waziristan, Pakistan (a mountainous region bordering Afghanistan). After the youngsters are trained in terroristic practices intended to be used to murder Western troops, they are sent over the border to complete their mission.
The kids appear to be Chinese Muslims who come from families within the Turkic ethnic group of Uyghur. This is not the first time media reports of child terrorism have surfaced. Back in 2009, four young boys described their alleged experience being captured and then forced to learn to become suicide bombers at a training camp. Watch them describe their experience, below:
