Chilling footage from CCTV shows the Sri Lanka suicide bomber on Easter Sunday when he pats a child on the head while heading into the church to launch an ISIS-inspired attack.
The terrorist can be seen wearing a large backpack heading towards St Sebastian's Church in Negombo where he was going to murder Christians.
At least 110 people died in the suicide bombing. This is part of a series attacks against churches and luxury hotels that have killed more than 300 people.
Amaq, the news agency of ISIS, posted a photo on Twitter that confirmed the seven attackers on Easter Sunday. They were identified as Abu Ubayda, Abu al-Mukhtar, Abu Khalil, Abu Hamza, Abu al-Bara'a, Abu Muhammad, and Abu Abdullah.
In the photo they are seen standing in front of an ISIS flag while wearing black robs and masks with knives in their hands.

Then there was the shocking video of the suicide bomber patting a child on the head before going into the church to launch the attack. It is absolutely disturbing that he could come in touch with a child while on the way to commit such a heinous act.
This is the reason the Trump administration has tightened up security for entering this country. It takes a really sick person to commit an act like this. By vetting those who are coming into this country it makes it less likely something this can happen in the United States.
