US President Barack Obama has telephoned Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to offer his condolences after the apparent murder of a Japanese hostage by Islamic State.

Obama said the US stood "shoulder to shoulder" with Japan.

Abe said he accepted that a video claiming Haruna Yukawa had been killed by IS was likely to be authentic.

The prime minister has demanded the release of a second Japanese hostage in the video, said to be Kenji Goto.
