WASHINGTON, Feb 19: The number of children who have died fighting for so-called Islamic State (IS) in the last year is nearly twice the previous estimate, a report says.
Researchers at Georgia State University tracked IS propaganda and eulogies over 13 months.
The propaganda claimed 89 boys aged eight to 18 had been killed fighting in a number of different combat roles.
They believe 60% were aged between 12 and 16, while 6% aged between eight and 12.
Some 18% of the boys died in attacks.     ?BBC
