Video shows children firing guns at terrorist training camp

AN ALARMING video posted on YouTube shows young children apparently being trained as terrorists by Al Quaeda.

In some cases, the youngsters, lined up for firing practice, seem almost unable to soak up the kickback force of the weapons they fire.

The children range in age from the very young to teens, firing handguns and AK-47s.

The video suggest the children are at an Al Qaida terrorist training camp in north Waziristan.
