New ISIS Video Reportedly Shows Beheading of British Aid Worker David Haines


The terrorist group ISIS has put out a third video depicting a gruesome beheading, this time of a man identified as British aid worker David Haines. Unlike the other videos, which were addressed to America, this video is addressed “to the allies of America.”

The executioner sends his message to Prime Minister David Cameron, saying, “This British man has to pay the price for your promise, Cameron, to arm the Peshmerga against the Islamic State. Ironically, he has spent a decade of his life serving under the same Royal Air Force that is responsible for delivering those arms. Your evil alliance with America which continues to strike the Muslims of Iraq and most recently bombed the Haditha Dam will only accelerate your destruction.”

This week Haines’ family had been publicly pleading with his captors to release him.

ABC News’ Jon Williams tweeted details about the video:

This is the third such horrible beheading publicly carried out by ISIS, following the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

Update- 6:30 pm: The executioner ends the video with a threat to kill another British man named Alan Henning.

And here’s a still image from the video:
