ISIL claims killing of two journalists in Turkey
BEIRUT - The Associated Press
DHA photoThe Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group has claimed responsibility for last week's slaying of two Syrian journalists in Turkey's southeastern province of Şanlıurfa.
In a video posted on Nov. 2, it warned "apostates" that "the arm of the Islamic State [ISIL] will reach you, wherever you are."
Ibrahim Abdul-Qadir and Fares Hamadi were found dead in an apartment in the Turkish city of Şanlıurfa on Oct. 30. Abdul-Qader was a founding member of "Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently," a collective of activists who document the ISIL group's atrocities in its de facto Syrian capital. Both men are from Raqqa.
The grim video shows Hamadi's body, with his throat slit, in a dark room. Abdul-Qadir was not shown.
The video does not make clear whether it was shot in Şanlıurfa. It's unclear when the two were killed.
