Iraqi Soldiers on Saturday, March 18 disarmed a child suicide bomber dressed in full ‘Hazard’ Chelsea football kit after they found a suicide bomb strapped around his waist. The 7-year-old boy was seized outside the war-torn Iraqi city of Mosul after hiding among families fleeing ISIS.
In the tense video below, a soldier can be seen carefully lifting up the child’s blue shirt, bearing the name of Chelsea star Eden Hazard, to reveal what looks like an explosive belt around his waist. Before he then slowly snips wires and cuts away the device while telling the youngster: ‘Don’t be afraid’.
The video which was released on LiveLeak, claims that the boy is the youngest ever child suicide bomber – however, this has not been verified.
