Japan's prime minister has condemned as "outrageous and unacceptable" a video declaring the murder of Japanese hostage Haruna Yukawa by Islamic State.

Shinzo Abe demanded the release of a second hostage, purported to be Kenji Goto, shown in the video.

Japan says it is trying to verify the footage.

On Tuesday Islamic State said it would kill the two men unless Japan paid 200 million Dollars within 72 hours.
