These kids were imitating the gruesome murder of the Jordanian pilot that was filmed by ISIS. This is truly sickening.
A group of children in Yemen have attempted to burn a 10-year-old boy to death after first locking him in a cage in a shocking imitation of the Islamic State’s murder of a Jordanian pilot.
As many as seven boys are believed to have attacked the as-yet unnamed victim in Al Dahthath village in the country’s northern Ibb province.
The defenceless child was then locked in a wooden cage and had petrol poured over his body before being set alight. Thankfully a group of locals spotted the attack and managed to save the boy’s life, although he was still left with horrific burn injuries on his legs.
The attack is understood to have been a sickening imitation of the brutal murder of Jordanian pilot Mu’ath al-Kasasbeh, who was burnt alive by ISIS earlier this year.
The chilling footage, entitled ‘Healing the Believers’ Chests’, shows the caged airman wearing an orange jumpsuit and seemingly doused in fuel as a trail of petrol leading up to the iron bars is seen being set alight.
