British hostage
London - XINHUA

A three-minute video has been released by the Islamic State (IS) Thursday afternoon, showing a British hostage, saying he would show some facts and truth in a series of programs.
The video, which entitled "Lend Me Your Ears," showed a man in orange shirt. The man said he is John Cantlie, a British journalist who used to work for the Sunday Times, the Sun and the Sunday Telegraph.
He said he was captured by the Islamic State after arriving in Syria in November 2012.
With no other people appeared in the short video, Cantlie said: "I am a prisoner. That I cannot deny. But seeing as I've been abandoned by my government and my fate now lies in the hands of the Islamic State, I have nothing to lose."
"Maybe I will live, and maybe I will die. But I want to take this opportunity to convey some facts that you can verify. Facts that if you contemplate might help preserving lives," he said.
He also said over the next few programs, he would show the truth as the western media tries to drag the public back to the abyss of another war with the Islamic State.
The journalist asked during the filming "after two disastrous and hugely unpopular wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, why is it that our governments appear so keen to get involved in yet another unwinnable conflict?"
He added he would show the truth behind these systems and motivation of the Islamic State, and how the western media can twist and manipulate that truth to the public back home.
Cantlie repeated he would reveal the truth "what happened when many European citizens were imprisoned and later released by the Islamic State, and how the British and American governments thought they could do it differently to every other European country."
"They negotiated with the Islamic State and got their people home while the British and Americans were left behind," he said.
He said what he would show in the next few programs would surprise the pubic.
It is the second time that Cantlie was captured in Syria. He was kidnapped in July 2012, but escaped with the help from the Free Syrian Army. He returned to Syria four months later and then fell into the hands of militants.
Islamic State recently killed three hostages, including two American journalists and a British aid worker. It threatened to kill another British hostage named Alan Henning next.
