THIS is the first photo of a six-year-old boy who was reportedly beheaded with a piece of broken glass for his screaming mother.
Zakaria Al-Jaber would have traveled with a mother in Saudi Arabia in a taxi when he was dragged by the driver.
The driver then struck a bottle and cut the child's throat before he repeatedly stabbed him, while his helpless mother tried to stop the horror, reports TMV.
Officials in Saudi Arabia said the taxi driver has mental health problems, the station says.
But local residents have claimed that it was an "act of sectarianism because the boy was from a Shia Muslim background".
A photo of the boy is now shared on Twitter by Sajid Hussain, who said: "The smallest crates are the heaviest".

Sources near the family claimed Zakaria was in a taxi to visit the sanctuary of the Prophet Muhammad in Medina.
However, the taxi driver stopped the car and "forced the boy away from a coffee house in the Al-Tilal neighborhood," says TMV.
The driver would have smacked the boy's throat when his traumatized mother collapsed in the street.
Passers tell TMV that an agent in the neighborhood also tried to stop the man from attacking the boy, but could not save him.
He limited the driver until other officers arrived.
Campaign group Shia Rights Watch said in a press release about the death of the boy that the "unknown man" had asked the mother if she was Shia when they arrived at the shrine, and "the woman said" yes "."
What is the difference between Sunnis and Shiite Muslims?
The break between Sunnis and Shiite Muslims took place after the death of the Prophet Muhammad – and who would succeed him.
There was an early schism and theological differences developed from this, explains expert Dr. Carool Kersten out.
The Sunnis appointed the successor to the Arab tribal tradition while the Shi'ans believed that Mohammed's successor should belong to his family.
The name Sunni comes from "Ahl-a-Sunnah", which means "the people of tradition", while Shia is from "Shiat Ali", which means "the party of Ali".
Sunni Muslims appoint a caliph as leader, while Shiite Muslims designate an imam.
With regard to the schism, Dr. Kersten said: "The imams were considered infallible, while the caliph was simply a man for the Sunnis, to maintain law and order."

Activists told the lawyers' group, headquartered in Washington DC, that "minutes after this interview" the child had been snatched from her and was being attacked with a piece of broken glass.
The group added: "Witnesses report that the child was beheaded from behind his head while his mother watched and shouted.
"There was no intervention from anyone and no response from authority so far."
Shia Rights Watch said that the Saudi Shiite community "came together in grief and showed solidarity with the parents.
