Turkey's Deputy PM Yalçın Akdoğan strongly condemned on Sunday what seems to be the latest video depicting a hostage's beheading.
A video apparently showing the beheading of Japanese journalist Kenji Goto, 47, by the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS), was released online on Saturday night.
Describing the act as "brutal terrorism," Akdoğan offered his condolences to Goto's family, the Japanese government and all the Japanese people.
Goto, 47, was captured by the group known as ISIS, in late October and had been held with fellow Japanese Haruna Yukawa, who was killed last week. Goto had reportedly travelled to Syria to help release Yukawa after he was seized in August.
Akdoğan said that violence against journalists was "unacceptable."
Turkey's Foreign Ministry also condemned the apparent execution of the Japanese hostage in a statement, saying: "Terrorism is a crime against humanity."
