Latest ISIS video shows beheading of Japanese hostage
Published January 31st, 2015
A 66 second ISIS video has just been released, reportedly showing the beheading of Japanese reporter Kenji Goto, a gruesome end to a week of failed negotiations.
Japanese and U.S. Intelligence officials had no immediate comment. The Associated Press has yet to verify if the video is real, but they say it is similar to other beheading videos the extremists released.
The video, called "A message to the government of Japan," featured a militant who looked and sounded like a militant with a British accent who has taken part in other beheading videos with the Islamic state group.
Goto released a video himself before he entered ISIS territory in Syria. "It is my responsibility...uh if something happens," said Goto.
ISIS members captured Goto in October 2014, after he traveled to Syria to try to win the release of another journalist.
