ISIS brutally removes head of Croatian hostage

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group’s Egypt affiliate, the Sinai Province, has published a still photo of the beheaded body of a Croatian hostage it had threatened to kill last week, Aljazeera reports.

The photo included a caption that said “killing of the Croatian hostage, due to his country’s participation in the war against Islamic State, after the deadline expired.”

The photo was distributed on Twitter on August 12.

A spokesman for the Egyptian interior ministry’s press office said, “We have seen this news online but are currently making our own checks.

“If we confirm that it is indeed true, we will inform the media through a statement,” he said.

Last week, an online video purportedly from Sinai Province showed a man who identified himself as Tomislav Salopek, who said the group would kill him in 48 hours if Muslim women in Egyptian jails were not freed.
