Chechen Militants Release Beheading Video

(Islamic Emirate of Caucasus )
Chechen militants from the Islamic Emirate of Caucasus released a four-minute video of the beheading of a Russian commander identified as Adhan.

He captured during an ambush by the militants, as one of the group's members pretended to be turning himself in in order to secure the release of a relative taken hostage by the Russian forces.

The video first showed a video of the Russian commander amongst his soldiers before showing very graphic pictures of his decapitated body.
