Second Frenchman likely on IS beheading video: government spokesman

PARIS (Reuters) - France believes a second French militant appears on a beheading video released by Islamic State at the weekend, government spokesman Stephane Le Foll said on Wednesday.

Officials said on Monday that one of the men shown herding prisoners to their execution was Maxime Hauchard, a Frenchman Muslim convert who left for Syria in 2013. Further analysis suggested another French citizen also took part in the video.
