Standard

Critics Have Debated Whether the Video ISIS Released Showed the Beheading of Haruna Yutawa is Fake or Not

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said his government can’t confirm the authenticity of a video released by ISIS claiming to show the beheading of hostage Haruna Yutawa but it’s “credibility is high”.  The video has been debated since its release several days ago, with some critics pointing to shadows pointing in different directions.

ISIS also released an audio recording of fellow captive Kenji Goto saying ISIS demanded the release of Sajida-al-Rishawa, a suspected bomber who is being held in prison in Jordan on the death penalty.  Prime Minister Abe said “Japan will not give in to terrorism.”
