Video Purportedly Shows Beheading of American Journalist

Posted: Updated:
BEIRUT (AP) - Another American journalist has apparently been beheaded in Syria. An Internet video purports to show the beheading of Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State group. 

Sotloff, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen in Syria in August 2013 until he appeared in a video released online last month by the Islamic State group that showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley. 

In that video, Sotloff was threatened with death unless the U.S. stopped airstrikes on the group in Iraq.
