(Daily Mail) — A shocking video has emerged from Pakistan depicting children role-playing a Taliban suicide bombing.
The 84-second clip shows Pashtun children recreating a terrorist attack, with one boy dressed in black — the ‘bomber’ — being embraced and wished well by his friends before setting off on his deadly mission.
In the single-take video, the ‘bomber’ then approaches another boy, dressed in white, who appears to be mimicking a member of the security forces and tries to stop him.
But the young Jihadi then ‘detonates’ — with other boys throwing sand into the air to simulate the explosion — and others rush in to examine the children who are playing dead.
Ahsan Masood, a Pashtun from Waziristan in Pakistan, posted the video on Facebook because he ‘thought it was funny’.
Salma Jafar of Save the Children UK in Pakistan, told The Guardian: ‘It’s horrifying and alarming.
‘These children have become fascinated by bombers rather than condemning them.
‘If they glamorise violence now, they can become part of it later in life.’
