ISIS have released a video threatening the Japanese government and showing the beheading of hostage Kenji Goto. Goto had been threatened in an ISIS video last week, which showed the beheading of fellow hostage Haruna Yukawa. The terrorist organization demanded $200 million from the Japanese government for the release of the hostages.
ISIS also wanted failed suicide bomber Sajida Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi to be released from death row in Jordan. “Jihadi John”, the executioner in all of ISIS’s beheading videos told Japan that “we are an entire army thirsty for your blood.”
