UK hostage in new IS video

Islamic extremists have released another propaganda video featuring British hostage John Cantlie.

The clip, which lasts for five-and-a-half-minutes, shows Mr Cantlie dressed in the familiar orange outfit worn by other Islamic State (IS) hostages.

The video has the title "Lend Me Your Ears" and "Messages From The British Detainee John Cantlie".

Mr Cantlie looks calm and appears to be reciting a script. He describes himself as a "long-term prisoner" and criticises President Obama's air strikes.
