Queenslander linked to Australian first suicide bombing

A PROPAGANDA video has been released of what is claimed to be Australia's first suicide bomber - a man who is reported to be from Queensland.

The man blew himself up at the Deir ez-Zor airport while driving a truck full of explosives.

The Australian jihadist was reportedly fighting with Al-Qaeda and has been in Syria for a year.

The man, who was reportedly in his late 20s, would be Australia's first suicide bomber if reports are confirmed.

According to a jihadi website, the Australian man known in the group as Abu Asma al Australi drove out of their base at 5:45am Wednesday (October 2, 2013) on a truck carrying 12 tonnes of explosives.

LiveLeak.com reported Abu Asma al Australi headed for the checkpoint near the military airport in Deir Al Zour.

Abu Asma, described by his fellow terrorist as their "immigrant Lion" killed 35 soldiers.

His family today denied it was him on radio.
