Topic: Islamic State says it has beheaded second Japanese hostage Goto


By Sylvia Westall and William Mallard BEIRUT/TOKYO (Reuters) - Islamic State militants said on Saturday they had beheaded a second Japanese hostage, journalist Kenji Goto, after the failure of international efforts to secure his release through a prisoner swap. The hardline Islamist group, which controls large parts of Syria and Iraq, released a video which seemed to show the beheaded body of Goto and threatened further attacks on Japanese targets. Japanese Defense Minister Gen Nakatani said the video appeared to be genuine. Islamic State had said Goto, 47, was held along with a Jordanian pilot.
