North Waziristan, Jul 11: A shocking new video that shows children as young as five being trained to be martyrs in a secret al-Qaeda camp in North Waziristan area of Pakistan has emerged. The fact only proves that Pakistan is most definitely the hot bed of terrorism and related activities. 

Raising fear of further attacks on foreign land, the report that appeared in The Daily Mail says that videos have come out showing toddlers being trained to blow up buildings and to launch roadside bomb attacks. The video shows children dressed in camouflage uniform and given AK-47 rifles for training.

This fact was backed by claims from British commanders in Afghanistan stating the increasing use of children as suicide bombers and human shields by Taliban fighters. It is believed that both the Taliban and al-Qaeda militants are training hundreds of children in a secret hideout in North Waziristan who are later sent to fight the Western troops across the border.

According to the newspaper report, the children have apparently been brought from the Turkic ethnic group of Uyghur people and is believed to have fled China and settled in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Kazakhstan.

Terrorism experts have however stated that these videos have been released as part of a Jihad recruitment drive.
