A frame from video released by the Islamic State (IS) reportedly shows American freelance journalist Steven Sotloff (L) next to an unknown IS militant, shortly before his execution by beheading, in an unknown desert location. In the video, Sotloff makes a statement saying he is paying the price for the Obama Administration's foreign policy in Iraq. ISIS reportedly titled the video 'A Second Message to America' in reference to the execution of journalist James Foley. The beheading, which was posted in a video online, was carried out by a hooded man with a British accent, the reports said. The White House could not confirm the killing, which follows the bloody execution of US journalist James Foley
