'Islamic State' extremists murder second US reporter

- +

The so-called "Islamic State" has murdered a second American reporter, releasing another video Tuesday showing a masked militant with an English accent cutting the throat of a US captive - and warning that a British aid worker would be next. 

A video screenshot shows US journalist Steven Sotloff kneeling next to a masked man holding a knife and claiming to be from the Islamic State.

In the latest footage, the 31-year-old reporter Steven Sotloff calmly addresses the camera to say he is a victim of President Barack Obama's decision to press on with air strikes against the jihadists.
