ISWAP Brutally Executes 11 Christians in Nigeria

The Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) brutally executed a group of its hostages, most of whom were Christians. ISWAP released a 56-second video produced by “news agency” Telegram, claiming to show the killing of eleven Christians in Nigeria. In the footage, a captive in the middle is shot dead while the rest are pushed to the ground and beheaded. ISWAP said that it spared two of its captives. The video was released on December 26, and analysts say it was appropriately timed to coincide with Christmas celebrations. Another video circulated early this month that showed the group pleading for help.
