SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia is seeking to confirm Islamic State's claim that an Australian teenage recruit died after blowing himself up in Iraq, the country's foreign minister said on Thursday.

Islamic State released an image on Wednesday claiming to show Abu Abdullah al-Australi before he carried out a suicide attack on the Iraqi city of Ramadi. Australian media recently named Abu Abdullah al-Australi as a pseudonym of 18-year-old Australian Jake Bilardi.
