Prosecutors in Paris have opened an inquiry into a video attributed to ISIS showing two children, presented as being French, and suggesting they took part in the killing of Syrian prisoners, a judicial source said Monday.
The 14-minute video entitled "In my father's footsteps", which was released on Sunday by ISIS, shows a teenager who says he lived in France and was "the son of a French fighter who died a martyr". There is also another younger boy in the video.
"Their identities have not been established at this stage and their nationality has not been confirmed," the source close to the inquiry said.
The investigation opened Sunday into possible terrorism-related acts and associations is being conducted by the French intelligence agency and the anti-terrorism unit of the judicial police.
