New video allegedly shows ISIS beheading Japanese hostage
(AP) – An online video purports to show Islamic State group militants beheading Japanese journalist Kenji Goto.
The video, released late Saturday, shows a militant with a British accent beheading Goto.
The video, released via militant websites, bore the symbols of previous Islamic State group videos. It could not be immediately independently confirmed by The Associated Press.
Japan’s deputy foreign minister, Yasuhide Nakayama, said late Friday that efforts to free Goto were “in a state of deadlock.”
