Australian authorities are investigating the terrorist group ISIS' claim that a baby-faced Australian teenager died after blowing himself up in Iraq.
IS announced on Wednesday a photo that allegedly show the 18-year-old Australian before he conducted an attack on an Iraqi army unit in the town of Ramadi west in the country.
- I can confirm that the Australian government is trying to obtain independent confirmation of reports that a 18-year-old from Melbourne has been killed by a suicide bomb in the Middle East, says the Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop on Thursday.
Authorities estimate that around 90 Australian citizens have been fighting with ISIS in Syria and Iraq, of whom 20 are believed to be dead already.
