  • A youth involved in a suicide attack in Iraq was a teenager of 18 years from Melbourne, it has been revealed.

    Sunni militant group Isis had claimed responsibility for the attack and named the bomber as Abu Bakr al-Australi.

    Describing the news as a “disturbing development,” George Brandis, Australia’s attorney-general, said the government was “deeply concerned about the involvement of Australians in these activities.”
