CNN is reporting that a second journalist has been beheaded by the ISIS terror group after a video showing the gruesome beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff surfaced online on Tuesday.

The video, titled, "A Second Message to America" shows Sotloff, saying that he is "paying the price for U.S. intervention," shortly before he is killed by a masked person who is allegedly part of the Islamic State terrorist group. The person behind the mask warned that another person in captivity, David Haines, was also at risk of losing his life. He then went on to give a brief warning directed at President Barack Obama.

"Just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people."

The alleged beheading of Steven Sotloff comes just a week after his mother, Shirley Sotloff, begged ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi not to kill her son. Sotlof's mother spoke about her son in the video, telling his captors that Steven is an "honorable man."

"Steven is a journalist who traveled to the Middle East to cover the suffering of Muslims at the hands of tyrants. Steven is a loyal and generous son, brother and grandson. He is an honorable man and has always tried to help the weak."
