French Officials Identify ISIS Militant In Kassig Video


French security services have identified an Islamic State militant who appears in a beheading video released by the group over the weekend as one of its nationals and are analyzing the footage to determine if the second fighter is also French. The 15-minute video posted online shows the decapitations of 18 men who Islamic State said were pilots and officers loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, as well as the severed head of the U.S. aid worker Peter Kassig.
