Boko Haram leader threatens to kill German hostage

The Associated Press

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) The leader of Nigeria's Islamic extremists is threatening to kill a captured German.

Abubakar Shekau says in a new video released late Friday that Boko Haram is still holding the unidentified German who he says is "always crying."

He says they could "hack him or slaughter him or shoot him."

Germany's Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said this week that there was no new information about the abducted German.

A previous video, received by The Associated Press through the same channels, showed the beheading of a man friends identified as the pilot of a missing fighter jet that Boko Haram claims to have shot down.
