The Islamic sect has released another video in which it claims that it has beheaded another American journalist, Steven Sotloff. The video ended with a warning that a British hostage would be the next to be killed.

From The Guardian: "In a video, entitled A Second Message to America, a masked man is shown carrying out the decapitation of Sotloff, whose life had earlier been threatened in a film that showed the murder of another American journalist, James Foley.

The same British jihadist with a distinctive London accent, who was filmed purportedly killing Foley two weeks ago, also appears on the film released by the Islamic State (Isis) on Tuesday. The film ends with the killer threatening another hostage, identified as a Briton.

Jabbing his serrated knife towards the camera, the masked man was filmed declaring: “I’m back, Obama.”

He says: ‘As your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike necks of your people.’

'I’m back Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic state, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings and … on Mosul Dam, despite our serious warnings. You Obama, have but to gain from your actions but another American citizen. So just as your missiles continue to strike out people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people.'
