Islamic State (ISIS) beheads US journalist, releases video

  • ISIS militants have circulated a video purportedly showing the beheading of a US journalist, who was being held captive in Syria, as per media reports.

    In the video, a masked Islamist fighter is shown executing James Wright Foley, a photojournalist missing since 2012. Foley is seen dressed in an orange suit and his killer speaks in what appears to be a British accent.

    The killing, Isis says, is in response to American airstrikes against the militant group in north Iraq.
