Looking at this, experts now believe that the teen might have been from Pakistan and only posed to be from Afghanistan to gain entry into Germany.

Further experts have also pointed out that his accent is clearly Pakistani and added that a Pakistani document was found in his room.



They had also found a farewell letter in which he said:

‘World’s Muslims must defend themselves…Now pray for me that I can take revenge on non-believers, pray for me that I can get to heaven.”

In the IS video teen identified himself as “Mohammed Riyadh”, which does not match the name under which he registered in Germany.
