    Islamic State jihadists have released a video in which a militant speaking English with a British accent beheads a man they claim to be an American journalist.
    The journalist, claimed by Islamic State to be James Foley, has been missing since he was seized by armed men in Syria in 2012.
    The terrorist group, formerly known as Isis, released the graphic video of the beheading, saying it was conducted in retaliation for US air strikes in northern Iraq.
    The killer then issued a threat to President Barack Obama that a second journalist would be killed unless air strikes are called off.
    White House National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said: "We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of US citizen James Foley... the intelligence community is working as quickly as possible to determine its authenticity.
