New video of Islamic State captive Goto 'despicable', says Japan PM

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Wednesday termed as "despicable" a new video appearing to show Japanese journalist Kenji Goto, who is being held by Islamic State militants, saying he could be killed in 24 hours.

"The video is despicable and I feel strong anger," Abe told reporters. Earlier, at the start of a meeting of cabinet ministers, he reiterated that Japan was calling on Jordan to cooperate in working for Goto's quick release.
