Kidnapped Kurdish school children are being taught to be Jihadists by ISIS

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which has since taken over large swaths of northern and central Iraq, abducted more than 600 children on May 30 as they attempted to travel from Kurdish villages along the Turkish border to the rebel held portions of Aleppo for their final exams. After releasing hundreds of female students and the younger children, the militants kept 150 older boys with the promise they would all be released after a ten-day period of Islamic instruction.
