An ISIS terrorist pointed a knife at the heads of two Japanese hostages and demanded $200 million in reparations within 72 hours, “otherwise this knife will become your nightmare.”
The video released Monday, that YouTube will not allow, shows two japanese men on their knees in the desert wearing orange jumpsuits who are identified as Kenji Goto Jogo and Haruna Yukawa.
“You have proudly donated $100 million to kill our women and children, to destroy the homes of the Muslims,” the terrorist said to the camera in English while waving a knife. “So the life of this Japanese citizen will cost you $100 million.”
The video, identified as being made by the Islamic State group’s al-Furqan media arm and posted on militant websites associated with the extremist group, mirrored other hostage threats made the group.
The man speaking also resembled and sounded like a British militant involved in other beheadings by the Islamic State group, which now holds a third of Iraq and Syria under its self-declared caliphate.
