Tonight, the extremists posted a new video lasting 2 minutes and 30 seconds which appears to show the beheading of David Haines. At the end of the video, ISIS parade another hostage.
WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO BRING ISIS TO AN END?
Islamic State militants have released footage claiming to show the beheading of British hostage David Haines. The aid worker, 44, was captured by ISIS in Syria in March 2013.
The plight of the dad-of-two was revealed when he appeared at the end of a video showing the beheading of US journalist Steven Sotloff earlier this month. ISIS had threatened to kill Mr Haines if world leaders do not bow to their demands.
The ISIS video begins with a clip of David Cameron. Here is a full transcript of audio from the video:
A man believed to be David Haines: “My name is David Cawthorne Haines. I would like to declare that I hold you David Cameron entirely responsible for my execution.
“You entered voluntarily into a coalition with the United States against the Islamic State just as your predecessor Tony Blair did following a trend amongst our British Prime Minsters who can’t find the courage to say no to the Americans’
“Unfortunately it is we the British public who will pay the price for our parliament’s selfish decisions.”
ISIS militant: “This British man has to the 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 and playing the role of the obedient lapdog Cameron will only drag you and your people into another bloody and un-winable war.
The footage then shows what is believed to be the dead body of Mr Haines.
Another British hostage is paraded. The militant says: “If you, Cameron, persist in fighting the Islamic State then you like your master Obama, will have the blood of your people on your hands.”
