The Egyptian affiliate of the Daesh group threatened Wednesday to execute within 48 hours a Croatian man kidnapped in Cairo last month if Muslim women jailed in Egypt are not freed.
In a video posted online by the jihadists, the Croatian, who was working for a French company, appears kneeling at the feet of a hooded man holding a knife.
He reads from a sheet of paper that he will be executed within 48 hours if the Egyptian government fails to release Muslim women held in prisons.
