ISIS Claims to Kill Another Journalist

Hosted by

The group that calls itself the Islamic State has released a video claiming to show the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff. Sotloff was captured in Syria last year while covering the conflict for outlets like Time Magazine and Foreign Policy. ISIS had been threatening to behead Sotloff if the US airstrikes against its fighters did not stop.
