Sinai Province of the Islamic State (IS) threatened to kill a Croatian hostage in 48-hours if the Egyptian government does not exchange him for captive female Muslims.

The 1 minute, 15 second video, entitled, “A Message to the Egyptian Government,” was distributed on Twitter on August 5, 2015.

The captive, Tomislav Salopek, spoke in English and dictated the group’s demand. Sitting in front of a fighter holding a knife, Salopek indicated that he works for the French company CGG and was kidnapped on July 22, 2015. He stated: “They [IS] want to substitute me for the Muslim womans arrested in Egyptian prisons. These matters have to be achieved before 48 hours from now; if not, the soldiers of Sinai Province will kill me”.
