Isis have released a new video showing its vision of the end of the world.

The video is titled "Meeting at Dabiq", referring to the location of a supposed final battle between "crusaders" and "believers" - which will result in the believers' victory and mark the beginning of the end of the world.

Digitally altered footage shows Isis tanks advancing towards the Colosseum in Rome. St Peter's Basilica in Vatican City is also seen in the video.

Isis fighters are shown with rocket-propelled grenade launchers and AK-47 assault rifles inside an armoured vehicle - in footage reportedly taken in Iraq.

They can later be seen training in the desert.
