A shocking picture of an Australian boy holding the severed head of a Syrian soldier that was reportedly posted by the child's father on Twitter, has been condemned by the country's prime minister.
Tony Abbott denounced the image of the young boy of primary school age, which appeared on the account of ex-terror convict Khaled Sharrouf.
He told Australian radio that it showed how barbaric the Islamic State, previously known as Isis, had become.
Sharrouf's account has since been suspended but her reportedly wrote: "That's my boy," underneath the graphic image, according to The Australian newspaper.
Sharrouf was banned from leaving Australia after he was jailed for being part of a cell planning attacks in Sydney and Melbourne but he used his brother's passport to travel to Syria with his family, according to The Australian.
