The Islamic State militant group released video footage Wednesday it said showed two men who killed a priest in a French church pledging allegiance to IS group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The video, posted on the IS group news agency Amaq, shows two young men with an IS group banner, as one of them recites in Arabic in a strong non-native accent a traditional pledge of allegiance to the group's head.
