This is a moving video of Iraqi security people removing an explosive body pack from a boy who can't be more than twelve years old. The crowd applauds once it's removed.
From RT's description of the event:
The vest was dismantled by the security forces, who removed it from his body in the middle of the street before arresting the teenager and driving him away in a police truck.
Earlier in the day, another suicide bomber targeted the Jaafar Sadiq Shia shrine in Wasit neighbourhood, in an attack that left four people wounded after the bomber blew himself up. Although suspected of trying to target worshipers at the mosque, the assailant was prevented from entering and forced to detonate his vest at the gate as police were firing at him.
This appears to be one of a series of child bombers. Previously on the Rebel, we reported on several from earlier last week. Below, one of the most horrific:
The Turkish wedding attack which was a massive attack with many casualties.
