US President Barack Obama has telephoned Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to offer his condolences after the apparent murder of a Japanese hostage by Islamic State.
Mr Obama said the US stood “shoulder to shoulder” with Japan.
Mr Abe said he accepted that a video claiming Haruna Yukawa had been killed by IS was likely to be authentic.
The prime minister has demanded the release of a second Japanese hostage in the video, said to be Kenji Goto.
On Tuesday, Islamic State (IS) had said it would kill the two men unless Japan paid $200m (£130m) within 72 hours.
