Topic: Islamic State says Australian teenager carries out suicide attack in Iraq


By Colin Packham SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia is seeking to confirm Islamic State's claim that an Australian teenage recruit died after blowing himself up in Iraq, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said on Thursday. Islamic State released an image on Wednesday claiming to show Abu Abdullah al-Australi before he carried out a suicide attack on the Iraqi city of Ramadi. Australian media recently named Abu Abdullah al-Australi as a pseudonym of 18-year-old Australian Jake Bilardi. Images of what appeared to be an explosion were also published by the Islamic State group.
