Militants of the ‘Islamic State’ group have murdered a second American reporter and released a video of the murder on Tuesday, September 2. The video, which shows a masked militant with a British accent cutting the throat of a captive, was discovered only by the SITE terrorism monitoring group. The victim, 31-year-old reporter, Steven Sotloff was the same person seen in a previous beheading video of journalist James Foley last month.
