Video purports to show ISIS beheading British hostage

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Islamic State militants have published a video that is said to depict the murder of a British aid convoy volunteer Alan Henning three weeks after warning that he would be the next to die.

The video mirrored other beheading videos shot by the Islamic State group.

At the end of the video, entitled A Message to the Allies of America, Haines’ killer was seen holding Henning by the collar of the orange jumpsuit in which he was dressed, and saying in a distinctive London accent: “If you, Cameron, persist in fighting the Islamic State, then you, like your master Obama, will have the blood of your people on your hands.”

If the video is found to be authentic, Henning will be the fourth western hostage to have been killed by the group, following the video-taped beheadings of US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and Scottish aid worker David Haines.

After Henning’s execution, the video cuts to a man identified as Peter Edward Kassig, an American citizen who is shown kneeling in the desert, and wearing the same orange jumpsuit as previously executed hostages.
