GRAPHIC: A Second Message to America

BEIRUT — Islamic State extremists released a video posted Tuesday showing the beheading of a second American journalist, Steven Sotloff, and warning President Barack Obama that as long as U.S. airstrikes against the militant group continue, “our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people.” The footage – depicting what the U.S. called a sickening act of brutality – was posted two weeks after the release of video showing the killing of James Foley and days after Sotloff’s mother pleaded for his life. Barak Barfi, a spokesman for the Sotloff family, confirmed the death. In the video distributed Tuesday and titled “A Second Message to America,” Sotloff appears in a similar jumpsuit before he is beheaded by a fighter with the Islamic State, the extremist group that has claimed wide swathes of territory across Syria and Iraq and declared itself a caliphate. The organization threatened to kill another hostage, this one they identified as a British citizen. http://www.military.com/daily-news/2014/09/02/video-purports-to-show-beheading-of-us-journalist.html
