“A new video released by the official Islamic State media wing, Al Hayat Media, shows a young boy executing two Russian FSB agents captured by the organization. The boy was previously featured in an ISIS propaganda film showing the training of child soldiers in Kazakhstan.

Before their execution, the FSB agents are interviewed. The first identifies himself as Mamayev Jambulat, who told his interviewers that he was sent to gather info on the Islamic State and to get closer to an ISIS member. Jambulat said that he was born in Kazakhstan, which may explain why ISIS used a Kazakh child soldier to carry out his execution. The second soldier is named as Ashimov Sergey Nikolayavich, who said that he previously worked in Russian intelligence, and was sent to locate and kill a specific ISIS leader. Nikolayavich says during the interview that he received payment on a per-piece-of-info basis from Russian Intelligence. In the video, he also says that he was once a Muslim. None of his statements have been verified at this time and could very well be coerced in the interview under duress.”* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
