President Barack Obama said a video showing the beheading of a second American journalist by Islamic State underscores the need for a global alliance to confront the extremist group.

The recording posted online yesterday shows the execution of captured freelance journalist Steven Joel Sotloff by the militant Sunni group that controls a swath of eastern Syria and northern Iraq. 

Journalist James Foley was beheaded in a video released last month."It's not only that we're going to be bringing to justice those that perpetrated this terrible crime against these fine young men,' Obama said today during a visit to Tallinn, Estonia.
