In this photo released on April 25, 2015 by a militant website, which has been verified and is consistent with other AP reporting, young boys known as the “lion cubs” hold rifles during a parade after graduating from a religious school in Tal Afar, near Mosul, northern Iraq. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based organization that follows the Syrian war, said it documented at least 1,100 Syrian children under 16 who joined IS so far this year, many of whom were then sent to fight in Syria and Iraq.
