Cairo — A video released by the Daesh group appears to show the killing of two different groups of captured Ethiopians in Libya.

The 29-minute video released online Sunday shows two groups of captives. It says one group is held by a militant group affiliate in eastern Libya and the other by an affiliate in the south.

A masked fighter delivers a long statement before the video switches between footage of the captives in the south being shot dead and the captives in the east being beheaded on a beach.

It was not immediately clear who the captives were.

The video bore the official logo of the militant media arm Al-Furqan and resembled previous videos released by the group.
