Yemeni Children Imitate ISIS, Attempt To Burn Friend In A Cage


ISIS has caused the burning of another helpless victim, and this time it's a little boy.

According to the Daily Mail, a gang of children locked a 10-year-old boy in a cage before setting him on fire in Yemen.

This was an apparent attempt to copy the Islamic State's execution of the Jordanian pilot Moath al-Kasasbeh.

The culprits are believed to be seven boys who took it upon themselves to set another boy on fire in Al Dahthath village in Yemen's Ibb province. 

The group of kids locked the boy in a wooden cage and poured gasoline all over his body before setting him on fire. 

Some locals discovered the horrifying act in time to save the child's life. The boy is suffering from third degree burns to his legs. 

The children seemed to have been obsessed with the videos of ISIS's murders and executions. They even used mobile phone apps to share many of the videos with one another.

The boys were also imitating and playacting the hierarchy of the Islamic State, with a "leader" of the group sitting in a chair and barking orders to his comrades, the Daily Mail reports. 

It was only when the 10-year-old boy began shouting and crying in pain did the villager take notice to the atrocity that was occurring.

The boy was then taken to a hospital where he was treated for his badly burned leg, according to the site.

This has not been the first instance of young people imitating the atrocities committed by ISIS. Mere weeks ago, another group of young Yemeni boys were video-taped reenacting the execution of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya by the terrorist group. The video shows five young boys being led to a beach by five older boys. They proceed to mimic the beheadings of the Christians with sticks and pieces of wood.
