Police are warning the public that watching the video appearing to show the beheading of an US journalist by Islamic State (Isis) militants could be a terrorist offence.
The video, uploaded to YouTube, reportedly shows journalist James Foley being killed by an Isis fighter speaking with a British accent. The video, entitled Message to America, was a retaliation to the US airstrikes in Iraq, according to the alleged killer.
Both British and US forces are investigating the legitimacy of the video, with the FBI telling Foley's family there is "no reason to believe" it isn't real.
Foley, a journalist who has covered conflicts in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan, has been missing since he was captured by Sunni rebel fighters in Syria in 2012.
Meanwhile Foley is raked over the coals for his stupidity...
James Foley was one of a new breed of activists calling themselves journalists. He didn’t travel to report on a story, but to promote an agenda. And the agenda was obvious from his Twitter feed.
