This is a dramatic moment an ISIS child suicide bomber is stripped of his explosive belt by Iraqi police before it was about to be detonated.
The boy, who was wearing a Barcelona football shirt with FIFA World Player of the Year Lionel Messi on the back, reportedly burst into tears as he was detained by Iraqi police in the city of Kirkuk, north of Baghdad, yesterday.
His arrest came less than 24 hours after another child suicide bomber killed at least 51 people and injured 100 more at a wedding party in Turkey.
It has led to fears children are increasingly being used by ISIS to carry out deadly attacks. Two other suicide bombers blew themselves up in Kirkuk on Sunday.
The Kurdish media group Rudaw revealed that the apprehended suspect was stripped of his explosives belt by security forces before being led away.
'There is a dangerous campaign tonight against Kirkuk,' a security official told the network.
It has been claimed the boy was planning to blow himself up outside a Shia mosque. The belt was later detonated safely away from members of the public.
The attacks follow recent successful military offensives by Peshmerga forces against ISIS.
