ISIS demands $ 200 million ransom for Japanese hostages

The terrorists of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have captured two citizens of Japan and threaten to execute them if the Japanese government does not give the ransom within 3 days.

As usual, the terrorists have delivered the ultimatum on the Internet in the form of a video message. The video shows two prisoners Kenji Goto Jogo and Haruna Yukawa in the orange uniform. The ransom amounts to $ 200 million.

In their speech, the ISIS terrorists accuse the government of Japan of the fact that it has found $ 100 million for the operations against the ISIS. So, according to the militants, it will be able to find money for the hostages.

"You have proudly donated $100 million to kill our women and children, to destroy the homes of the Muslims. So the life of this Japanese citizen will cost you $100 million."

According to the agency, a representative of the terrorists has strongly pronounced British accent. According to the experts, this is the same man who was involved in the execution of American and British hostages.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has already reacted to the blackmail, calling it "unforgivable" and "resentful" for him. He also added that the lives of the hostages are "first priority" for Japan.

It is to be noted that public executions are commonplace for the ISIS terrorists. Last fall, in Iraq the participants of the Islamic State terrorist group publicly killed 50 local residents. It happened October 30 and 31. Within two days the militants of the Islamic state killed 98 people.
