BBC News with Julie Candler.

Islamic State militants have released a video which appears to show a young boy executing an Israeli Arab prisoner. In the footage, the man (who) identifies himself as 19-year-old Muhammad Said Ismail Musallam. Kevin Connolly reports from Jerusalem. “Muhammad Musallam left his home in East Jerusalem for Turkey last year, apparently intend to join the so-called Islamic State in Syria. A few months later, a magazine linked to ISIS carried a long interview in his name, which contained what purported to be a confession that he'd been sent by Israel to infiltrate the extremist organization.

A grim 13-minute-long video has now been released, showing a young man who appears to be Muhammad Musallam, kneeling in an orange jump suit, facing the camera in an empty field. Behind him stand two figures in camouflage fatigues, one of whom appears to be a child, chosen to have to deepen the shock value of what follows. The child seems to shoot the kneeling figure in the head and then to fire further shots into the body.”

Iraqi officials say that government forces backed by Shiite militias have retaken some areas of the city of Tikrit from Islamic State militants. The officials say security forces began the assault after recapturing the town of al-Alam on the northern outskirts of Tikrit. Iraqi officials and local residents say that IS has rigged explosives across the city to try to stop the advance.

The former US Secretary of State and likely presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, has admitted that she should have used the government email address to conduct official business during her time in office. Mrs. Clinton has come under fire from Republican members of Congress for using her personal email account instead. Mrs. Clinton told in news conference she'd used her own phone and email account for the sake of convenience.

Kim Ghattas reports from New York. “Hillary Clinton admitted that in hindsight she had made a mistake opting to use just one email account, her private email address. But she was adamant. She had not broken any rules or laws, had not shared any classified information by email, and insisted she was now opening up her email correspondence to an unprecedented level of scrutiny. Her critics, especially Republicans, are unlikely to be satisfied with her explanation. But so far, this has not affected the approval ratings of a woman who could still run for president of the United States.”

The widow of an atheist blogger who was murdered in Bangladesh twelve days ago said she would continue to speak out on the causes dear to both him and her, secularism and science. Rafida Bonya Ahmed also suffered multiple injuries when her husband, Avijit Roy, a Bangladeshi-American, was hacked to death at a book fair in Dhaka University. Speaking to the BBC from a safe location, Ms. Ahmed said intolerance had got much worse in Bangladesh in recent years, and religious fundamentalism had taken deep roots. BBC News.

A coalition of legal advocacy and human rights groups in the United States, including the founder of the on-line encyclopedia Wikipedia have brought a federal lawsuit against mass surveillance operations carried out by the country's intelligence services. Gary O'Donoghue reports from Washington.

"The lawsuit alleges that the National Security Agency violated Americans' constitutional right to freedom of speech by sweeping up all text-based communications in an attempt to track terrorist communications. The founder of Wikipedia Jimmy Wales said such surveillance eroded the original promise of Internet, which she described as an open space for collaboration, and experimentation, and a place free from fear. The NSA is faced a platter of legal cases even since its former contractor Edward Snowden leaked thousands of documents detailing the Agency's activities. A spokesman for the Justice Department said only that it was reviewing the case."

A female suicide bomber has attacked a market in the northern Nigerian city of Maiduguri. The security forces said that at least seven people were killed, including the bomber. Nearly 30 others were wounded.

The Irish Parliament is preparing to vote on an emergency bill after the court of appeal in Dublin ruled that some of the country's drug laws were unconstitutional. The decision by three judges means it's technically legal at present to possess drugs, including ecstasy, ketamine and magic mushrooms in Ireland.

One of Britain's most prestigious universities, King's College London, has announced plans to move into the former home of the BBC World Service. The Chairman of King's said the acquisition of the old headquarter in central London which includes Bush House was a once-in-a-generation opportunity. The University has leased the site for fifty years. The World Service was based at Bush House from 1941 until July, 2012, when it moved to broadcasting house as part of a reorganization of BBC News.

伊斯兰国武装组织放出了一段视频,视频中一名男孩处决了一名以色列的阿拉伯犯人。犯人在视频中自称穆罕默德·塞得·伊斯梅尔·穆塞莱姆,今年19岁。凯文·康诺利从耶路撒冷报道。“穆罕默德·穆赛莱姆去年离开他在耶路撒冷东部的家前往土耳其,很显然他是要去加入叙利亚的所谓伊斯兰国组织。数月后,一本伊斯兰国杂志刊载了一篇对他的长篇采访,采访中穆赛莱姆似坦白承认他是被以色列派来渗透这个极端组织的。

在公布的13分钟残忍视频中,显示年轻人就是穆罕默德•穆萨拉姆。他身穿橙色连身裤,面朝相机跪在一片空地上。他身后的两个人身着迷彩服,其中一人显然是个孩子。选择让孩子参与其中就是为了加深后来发生事件的震惊力度。孩子似乎朝穆萨拉姆头部开了一枪,然后又向他身体补了数枪。

基米·哈特从纽约发回的报道,“希拉里克林顿事后承认她犯了错,使用了她的私人邮箱。但是她很坚定的表示,她没有违反任何规则或法律,并没有通过邮件共享任何私密的信息。目前她坚持公开自己的私人邮箱,可以接受任何程度的仔细检查。她的反对者们尤其是共和党人,不太可能满意她的解释。但是迄今为止,这并未影响她竞选美国总统的支持率。”

一名12天前在孟加拉国被谋杀的无神论博主遗孀表示她将继续为他们夫妇致力的事业,即现世主义和科学进行宣称。瑞菲达·阿曼德的丈夫阿维吉特·罗伊在达卡大学的书市上被袭致死,她自己也是多处受伤。阿维吉特·罗伊是一名孟加拉籍美国人。在一处安全居所内阿曼德夫人向BBC新闻讲述近年来在孟加拉国社会宽容渐渐消亡,宗教原教旨主义已扎根社会。BBC新闻。

美国法制宣传和人权组织联盟,包括在线百科全书——维基百科的创始人状告美国情报部门,指控该机构实施大规模监控行动。格里•奥多诺休,华盛顿报道。
