An image grab taken from a video released by the Islamic State (IS) and identified by private terrorism monitor SITE Intelligence Group on September 2, 2014, purportedly shows 31-year-old US freelance writer Steven SotloffThe so-called "Islamic State" released a video on Tuesday showing a masked militant apparently beheading an American journalist and threatening to kill a British captive. The footage, seen by AFP after it was found online by private terrorism monitor SITE, shows 31-year-old freelance reporter Steven Sotloff dressed in orange and on his knees in a desert landscape. The masked militant condemns the ongoing US strikes against the Islamic State -- a Sunni jihadist group that operates in Iraq and Syria -- and cuts Sotloff's throat. "I'm back, Obama, and I'm back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State," the militant says, speaking in what sounds like a London accent.
