Islamic State Egypt Affiliate Threatens to Kill Croatian Citizen

Militants in Egypt threatened to kill a Croatian citizen they kidnapped within 48 hours unless the government meets their demands to release female prisoners.

A video of a man identified as 30-year-old Croatian Tomislav Salopek was posted on Twitter accounts linked to Islamic State’s Egyptian affiliate on Wednesday. It shows the man kneeling next to the Islamic State flag and a masked militant holding a knife.
