Daesh confirms Japanese hostage beheading following release of video

Daesh radio confirmed on Sunday that its terrorists have executed Japanese security contractor Haruna Yukawa, following the release of a video announcing the hostage’s death, according to AFP.

“Daesh has carried out its threat… it has executed Japanese hostage Haruna Yukawa after the expiry of the deadline given,” the Sunni extremist group said on Al-Bayan radio.

“The second hostage (Kenji Goto) is calling on his relatives to put pressure on the (Japanese) government for the release of our sister Sajida al-Rishawi, held in the jails of the oppressors in Jordan, in exchange for his release,” it said
Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stated Sunday morning, however, that the “credibility” of the video is “high” and that the government will continue analyzing the images to fully confirm the authenticity of the video
