Young suicide bomber weeps before final mission

*WARNING: This article contains images that some may find distressing*

A YOUNG jihadist suicide bomber was filmed weeping before being sent to his death in Syria.

The fighter named as Jafar al-Tayyar, from Uzbekistan, was comforted by his fellow militants moments before he launched the deadly attack on Shi'ite town of Fua in Idlib Province - an Assad regime stronghold, the Daily Mirror reported.

In the footage he is seen sobbing as he climbs into the explosives-packed armoured personnel carrier.

"Jafar, my brother, don't be afraid. When you are scared, remember Allah," a fellow militant tells him.

Tayyar responded: "I'm just scared I won't succeed."

But the footage shows he does succeed and an explosion rocks the camera at the end of the video, the Daily Mirror reported.

It is not known how many people were killed and injured in the explosion.
