Islamic State video shows British boy known as ‘Junior Jihadi’ blowing up three prisoners



A British boy with Nigerian root, believed to be aged four and nicknamed “junior jihadi” has been filmed blowing up three prisoners in the latest grisly execution video released by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).

In exploitative footage that is shocking even by Isil’s standards, Isa Dare, whose mother Grace “Khadija” Dare is a convert to Islam who has sworn allegiance to the jihadist group, is seen pressing a button on what appears to be a remote control device seconds before a car containing four alleged “spies” goes up in a ball of flames.

Wearing a black Isil headband and military-style fatigues, the boy announced to the camera beforehand that “we are going to kill the kuffars (non-believers) over there”. He is then seen standing beside the car’s burnt-out remains, triumphantly punching the air and shouting: “Allahu akbar.”

The men inside the car, wearing handcuffs and orange jumpsuits, confessed their crimes to the camera and appear resigned to their fates before the vehicle explodes.

It is the second time Isa, who was brainwashed after his 24-year-old mother took him to Syria, has appeared in an Isil propaganda film.

“Firstly, when you sent your spies to Syria and when you authorised for your men, thousands of miles away, to push a button to kill our brothers who lived in the West.

“So today, we’re going to kill your spies the same way they helped you kill our brothers.

“So prepare your army and gather your nations as we too are preparing our army.”
