London: A 17-year-old boy, who left the UK to join ISIS terror group, is believed to have become Britain's youngest ever suicide bomber.

Reports say that he blew himself up in Iraq with militants posting pictures of him on social media.

The boy has been identified as Talha Asmal.

Reports say that he was one of four suicide bombers who attacked security forces near an oil refinery south of Baiji.

At least 11 Iraqi security personnel were killed in suicide car bombing near Baiji. ISIS claimed that the four of its foreign fighters carried out the attack.
Asmal's family, believed to be of Pakistani origin, said they were "devastated" at the news.

Another West Yorkshire teenager, Hasib Hussein, was almost 19 when he blew himself up on a London bus in the July 7, 2005 attacks.
