ISIS-linked militants using kids as fighters in Philippines

According to reports, an ISIS-linked armed group is using children to fight as soldiers against the Philippine army. The militants are recruiting orphans, particularly those whose parents have been killed during combat, reports added. Notably, about 130 people have been killed in the violence which erupted last week after a failed military raid on a militant hideout. The Philippine military is battling the Maute and Abu Sayyaf armed groups, which have both declared allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) also known as ISIS.
