Islamic State ‘spy killings’ video desperate stuff, says PM

A video by so-called Islamic State (IS) featuring a man and young boy with British accents is “desperate stuff”, Prime Minister David Cameron has said. The film, which purports to show the killing of five men who IS says were spying for the UK, is from a group that is “losing territory” and “increasingly losing anybody’s sympathy”, he said. The UK’s intelligence agencies are examining the footage.

Voice-print analysis will be carried out to try to identify the masked man. The man says the 10-minute video – which has not been independently verified – is a message for David Cameron, and he threatens attacks in the UK.
