It comes a week after ISIS beheaded another Japanese hostage and demanded the release of a would-be suicide bomber. A video released Saturday claimed that Goto was executed after a Thursday deadline for Jordan to release prisoner Sajida al-Rishawi was not met. NBC News has not yet verified the video, but it appears consistent with other ISIS hostage videos, according to analysts SITE Intelligence. ISIS had threatened to execute Goto and 1st Lt. Mu'ath al-Kasaesbeh if al-Rishawi was not freed within 24 hours. Read »

ISIS Hostage Negotiations Reach "Stalemate": Japanese Official

Efforts to free a Japanese journalist held hostage by ISIS were in a "stalemate" after the militants' deadline for a prisoner exchange passed without news of his fate, a top Japanese diplomat told NBC News Friday. "The entire government is working as one to gather, analyze and share information," Japan's Deputy Foreign Minister Yasuhide Nakayama told journalists in Amman, Jordan. The Islamist extremist group said it would kill Japanese journalist Kenji Goto, as well as Jordanian pilot and fellow hostage Mu'ath al-Kaseasbeh, unless Jordan released an imprisoned would-be suicide bomber by sunset Thursday.
