Baghdad: The Isis militant group has released a new video purporting to show the execution of five British spies, and threatening David Cameron over the UK’s campaign in Syria.
In the video, which appears to have been released by the group’s Raqqa-based media arm, the alleged spies are shown wearing orange jumpsuits and “confessing” to spying on behalf of the UK security services.
Later in the 10-minute video they are shown kneeling on the ground before five executioners, as a militant speaking in a British accent says they have been “abandoned” by the British government.
The masked gunman can be heard saying: “This is a message to David Cameron,” who he describes as an “imbecile” and “slave of the White House”.
The militant compares the Prime Minister to “arrogant and foolish” predecessors Gordon Brown and Tony Blair, and adds that “you children will pay for your deeds”.
The video, which cannot be independently verified, ends with a trailer for a further execution and a brief clip of a young child, wearing militant garb and speaking with a British accent, appearing to say: “We will kill them over there.”
