British photojournalist John Cantlie, seen here, was kidnapped along with fellow journalist James Foley while covering the war in Syria in November 2012The Islamic State group has released a video showing John Cantlie, a British journalist kidnapped in Syria four years ago, alive in the Iraqi city of Mosul. The propaganda video by the IS-affiliated Amaq network shows an emaciated Cantlie speaking in English to the camera in the style of a news report similar to previous videos in which he appeared. The footage was not dated but the destroyed bridges seen behind Cantlie in the video suggest it was shot in recent weeks.
