IS killed hostage from Syria's Sweida: local media

The Islamic State jihadist group has executed one of dozens of Druze hostages abducted from Syria's southern province of Sweida last month, a Syrian news outlet and a monitor said on Sunday.

IS killed the 19-year-old male student on Thursday after kidnapping more than 30 people, mostly women and children, from a village in Sweida during a deadly rampage on July 25, the head of the Sweida24 news website Nour Radwan said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, said it was the first execution since the kidnappings.
