Monday, 22 August 2016 06:01 AM

IRBIL, Iraq (AP) — Iraqi police say they have apprehended a boy would-be suicide bomber in the city of Kirkuk before he was able to detonate his explosives belt.

Local television footage aired Monday on Kurdistan 24 TV shows a group of police officers holding the young boy while two men are seen cutting off a belt of explosives. After they remove the belt, the boy is seen being rushed into a police truck and driven away.

Kirkuk police department spokesman Col. Avrasiya Kamil Wais says the boy was apprehended on Sunday night, an hour after a suicide bomb attack on a Shiite mosque in the city. In that attack, only the bomber died.

Kirkuk, an oil rich city in Iraq's north is claimed by both Iraq's central government and the country's Kurdish region.
