Islamic State says it beheaded Christian captives in NigeriaMAIDUGURI/CAIRO (Reuters) – Islamic State released a video purporting to show its militants beheading 10 Christian men in Nigeria, saying it was part of a campaign to avenge the deaths of its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and its spokesman. The militant group posted the footage on its online Telegram news channel on Thursday, the day after Christmas, with Arabic captions but no audio. An earlier video seen by Reuters said the captives had been taken from Maiduguri and Damaturu in Nigeria's northeastern state of Borno, where militants have been fighting for years to set up a separate Islamist state.

Skeleton of Roman beheaded by giant flying rock slab found at Pompeii

Skeleton of Roman beheaded by giant flying rock slab found at PompeiiThe skeleton of a Roman man who was decapitated by a giant slab of rock has been discovered by archeologists in Pompeii. They believe the man, aged in his thirties, was attempting to flee the eruption of Mt Vesuvius when the 300kg rock slammed into him, beheading him and killing him instantly. He had struggled to escape the doomed city because he had an infection in his leg. Archeologists found the rock sticking out of the ground at an angle, with the remains of the man protruding and intact from the chest down. The rock, which they think may have been part of a stone doorway, was hurled into the air by the force of the eruption, which devastated Pompeii in AD79. Archeologists say the man was fleeing the eruption but was impeded by a leg bone infection Credit: Pompeii archeological site The skeleton was uncovered in an area of new excavations, close to a newly-discovered alleyway of houses with balconies. Massimo Osanna, the director general of the archaeological site, called the discovery "dramatic and exceptional". “A formidable stone block (perhaps a door jamb), violently thrown by the volcanic cloud, collided with his upper body, crushing the highest part of the thorax and yet-to-be-identified head, which probably lies under the stone block,” archeologists said in a statement. The experts found lesions on his tibia which indicate a serious bone infection. That “could have caused significant walking difficulties, enough to impede the man's escape at the first dramatic signs which preceded the eruption,” they said. Earlier this month, archeologists made another unusual discovery – the carbonised remains of a horse which died during the eruption of Vesuvius. The remains of a Roman horse were found earlier this month Credit: Pompeii archeological site The horse was found in the remains of a large Roman villa, which tomb raiders had been excavating illegally in search of artefacts and valuables. By pumping plaster into the space where the horse was found, experts produced an accurate cast of the animal. It was the first time that a cast was made of a horse at Pompeii – the technique has previously been used for the human victims of the cataclysmic eruption. Experts believe the horse was used in military parades and ceremonies. It was found in the remains of a stable attached to the villa.
