The Islamic State, a militant group that has overrun certain parts of Iraq and Syria, released a video Tuesday that purported to show the beheading of James Foley, a photojournalist who went missing in Syria in 2012.

U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Associated Press that the video appeared to be authentic and said the victim was Foley.

The Post's Wednesday cover can be viewed here, though WARNING: the image is graphic and disturbing.
