In the camp, he was given an option of becoming a fighter or a suicide bomber, but he turned down being a fighter because he might be killed at a battle front.
A bomb vest was however strapped to his body before he was sent to travel to a Shi'ite mosque in Baghdad, Iraq where he is supposed to detonate an explosive device.
But rather than killing himself and countless others, he took the brave decision to defy his orders by unzipping his jacket and handing himself in to guards standing nearby, saying he does not want to blow himself up.
A Policeman who came around gently removed the deadly equipment strapped to his body in front of stunned onlookers, setting him free from the explosive before he was handcuffed and whisked away.
It is believed that the teenager is currently being held at an Iraqi intelligence site.
