Iraqi police detain 11-year-old suicide bomber

It was a scene that could have turned deadly.

Kurdish police removing a suicide vest from an 11-year-old boy in Kirkuk.

Local TV showed two officers holding the boy down, while a third removed what turned out to be two kilograms of TNT.

It happened near a Shi’ite mosque.

The boy’s capture followed a deadly attack in Turkey that officials say was carried out by a 12 to 14 year old child.

Officials blame Islamic State in that attack… while it’s unclear who supplied the boy with the suicide bomb vest in this latest attempt.
