The Islamic State (ISIS) on Tuesday released a video claiming to show the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff, who was captured in Syria over a year ago. The news comes just two weeks after the murder of journalist James Foley by the same Islamic militant group. Meanwhile, the United States continues to launch airstrikes in Iraq against ISIS.
