The U.S. military has released a video apparently showing militants training young boys to kidnap and assassinate civilians. The tapes were seized during U.S. raids on suspected Al-Qaeda hide-outs in Iraq.
The silent footage shows a training operation with black-masked children, some of them apparently as young as 10.
U.S. officials say they don't know how many children have fallen under Al-Qaeda’s control.
