An offshoot of Islamic State in Egypt has posted images on social media of the execution of two men allegedly caught spying for the country's army in the Sinai, AFP reported Friday.

The Sinai Province claimed in its online posts that one of the decapitated men was a "spy for the military intelligence," while it purported that the other was a "spy for the army."

According to the report, the US monitor SITE Intelligence Group deemed the images uploaded to Twitter on Thursday night were authentic.
