Islamic State says it beheaded Christian captives in Nigeria

An earlier video seen by Reuters said the captives had been taken from Maiduguri and Damaturu in Nigeria`s northeastern state of Borno, where militants have been fighting for years to set up a separate Islamist state. In that video, the captives pleaded for the Christian Association of Nigeria and President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene to save them.
