London, Aug.4 : The Al Qaeda is reportedly training boys as young as five on how to use AK-47 assault rifles to fight British troops in Afghanistan. According to The Sun, images show kids training at an al-Qaeda terror camp in Pakistan learning how to use the assault rifles. Others show a boy nodding after he is asked if he is prepared to "die for Allah" - and boys in camouflage uniforms and headbands who say: "There is no God but Allah."
They feature on a seven-minute video that also includes footage of an 11-year-old boy killed in action.
Taken just weeks ago it is part of a major recruitment drive for the Taliban. The footage was posted on an internet website.
