“I have 24 hours left to live… the Jordanian pilot has even less,” says second Japanese hostage who claims ISIS will execute him and the Jordanian airman unless jailed female Muslim terrorist is released.
UK Daily Mail A video posted on jihadist websites shows a picture of Japanese hostage Kenji Goto holding a photograph of captured Jordanian pilot, 1st Lt Mu’ath al-Kaseasbeh. A voiceover, purportedly by Goto, warns that Jordan is blocking the Japanese journalist’s release by failing to free Sajida al-Rishawi, a would-be suicide bomber on death row since 2006.
The statement says Goto and al-Kaseasbeh will be beheaded within 24 hours if al-Rishawi is not freed and urges the Japanese government to put pressure on Jordan. The voiceover warns: ‘Any more delays by the Jordanian government will mean they are responsible for the death of the pilot which will then be followed by mine.
‘I only have 24 hours left to live… and the pilot has even less. Please don’t leave us to die. Japan has indicated it will not negotiate with terrorists.
Freelance journalist Kenji Goto was seized in late October in Syria, apparently while trying to rescue another hostage, 42-year-old Haruna Yukawa, who was captured by the ISIS terrorists last summer.
Sajida al-Rishawi gained notoriety in 2005 after confessing on Jordanian television that she tried to blow herself up alongside her husband in an Al Qaeda attack in Amman, Jordan.
