As the U.S. targets ISIS in Syria, the terror group puts out another hostage video.

FOX News Radio's Simon Owen reports:

It's a second film featuring a British journalist called John Cantlie, who's being held hostage by ISIS. A similar video featuring the same reporter emerged last week.

Just like in the first installment, no threat is made to the reporter's life. Instead he's behind a desk and appears to be reading a script calling the U.S. led coalition to tackle ISIS... a circus --and saying the operation is a potential mess.

ISIS is also threatening to kill another British man, just like the two American journalists and British aid worker before him.

Separately, an al-Qaeda splinter group in North Africa has published a video saying it will kill a Frenchman being held hostage, unless France calls off its involvement in airstrikes in Iraq.
