The Islamic State has released another video depicting the beheading of an American hostage held hostage by the group after he went missing in northern Syria while he was reporting in July 2013.

In August Islamic State insurgents released a video showing the beheading of US journalist James Foley, who had gone missing in Syria nearly two years ago.

That video contained images of US journalist Steven Sotloff whose life they said at the time depended on US action in Iraq.
