There is a new ISIS video that purportedly shows a child executing Russian spies. According to Buzzfeed, the video is from November. The boy, who appears to be about 10, says in Kazakh that his name is Abdallah.
Kazakh officials appeared to confirm that video’s authenticity by first insisting that outlets in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan delete it, then claiming to know the children’s identities. Most of the children traveled to Syria with their families, Kazakh deputy prosecutor Andrei Kravchenko told local media in December, adding that the country’s secret services were working on repatriating them.
