The Islamic State West Africa on Thursday released a 56-second video purportedly showing militants in black masks beheading 10 blindfolded Christian men and shooting an 11th in Nigeria.
The video, produced by ISIS own news agency, Amaq, and released a day after Christmas, was part of a grisly campaign to avenge the deaths of its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and the group’s spokesman.

The video already on the social media has Arabic captions with no audio.
The video shows ISIS soldiers wearing beige uniforms and black masks lined up behind the Christian men. One captive in the middle is shot while the other 10 are pushed to the ground and beheaded.
