Philip Hammond Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs has termed the video released by the IS militants as apparently genuine. He described the apparent beheading of a US journalist by an Islamic State militant with a British accent as “an appalling example of the brutality of this organisation”. James Foley, 40, a US journalist had been missing since he was seized in Syria in 2012 and this video shows him being beheaded.

The foreign secretary said this video of the killing appeared to be authentic.
