Failed teenage suicide bomber regrets attack

Security officials in Pakistan say they now believe the vast majority of those involved in suicide bombings in the country are teenage boys, groomed by the Taliban.

In April, two suicide bombers attacked a Pakistani shrine packed with thousands of devotees, killing scores of people.

One of the attackers, 14-year-old Umar Fidai, survived the attack.

He told the BBC's Aleem Maqbool he regretted being involved in the bombing.
