Aussie teen charts path from school to Islamic State bomber

A frame from a Islamic State group video shows a white car and an inset image of a young man who appears to be Melbourne teen Jake Bilardi in the driver's seat at an undisclosed location. Image released by SITE Intelligence Group on March 12, 2015An Australian 18-year-old who reportedly blew himself up in Iraq this week has described his march to “martyrdom”, blogging about the path he took from talented schoolboy to fanatical jihadi. The blog widely attributed to Jake Bilardi also reveals a “Plan B” to wage bombings on home soil in case he was prevented by Australian authorities from leaving to fight overseas. Officials have not confirmed Bilardi’s death but a photo purportedly from a propaganda video by the Islamic State group appears to show him sitting in the driver’s seat of a car used in a suicide bombing this week in Ramadi. Members of two mosques in Melbourne and friends of the teenager have confirmed his identity based on photographs circulating of him online, saying he converted to Islam after his mother died of cancer.
