GRAPHIC: Videos from ISIS of apparent questioning, torturing accused Japanese CIA ‘spy’

Various Twitter accounts are reporting that ISIS is celebrating the execution of a “Japanese Spy for the CIA.” These videos accompanied some of the tweets, showing an individual being interrogated and beaten by terrorists. While these are frightening and brutal videos, no death is shown.

From Al-Arabiya:

Japan’s government said Monday it was investigating a video posted online that appears to show a kidnapped Japanese man being roughly interrogated by Syrian militants.

The video, which surfaced over the weekend, shows a man who identified himself as Haruna Yukawa lying on the ground with blood trickling down his face as his apparent captors question him.

The man, with matted brown hair and wearing a black T-shirt stained by dust and sweat, offered brief responses to questions posed in English about why he was in Syria and the reason he was carrying a gun.

He replied that he was a “photographer” and a “journalist, half doctor”.

“I’m no soldier,” he said in the video.

Japan’s foreign ministry said it was trying to verify the man’s identity through its embassy in violence-wracked Syria, which is now operating out of neighboring Jordan.

“We are aware of what has been reported in social media and are trying to verify the information” including the man’s nationality, a foreign ministry official told AFP.

We hope the claims of his death are just empty bragging, but if not, may he rest in peace and his murderers burn in hell.
