Croatian hostage 'killed by IS in Egypt'

A photograph posted online appears to show that a Croatian hostage has been beheaded by Islamic State militants in Egypt.

Tomislav Salopek - a father of two - was kidnapped outside Cairo last month.

The Croatian government says it hasn't been able to verify his death but it fears the worst. It's the first time that an Egyptian group linked to IS has targeted a Western hostage in this way.
