Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe demanded today, that the Islamic State group immediately free two Japanese hostages unharmed after the militants posted a video threat to kill them.

IS has threatened to kill two Japanese hostages unless it receives a 200 million dollars ransom within 72 hours, but Abe vowed not to give in to "terrorism".

In a video posted on militant websites, a militant said that the ransom demand was to compensate for 200 million US dollars in non-military aid that Abe pledged in support of countries hit by IS violence.
