A footage of Karl Stefanovic, a co-host of Australian Nine Network's breakfast program "Today," appeared on a propaganda video of the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS, according to reports Thursday. The latest ISIS video boasted of causing “fear and panic” in the West and called for new recruits.
The 12-minute video, titled “So We Will Give Him A Good Life,” was released overnight through an ISIS channel on the encrypted communication service Telegram, the Australian Associated Press reported. The video begins with scenes of armed police and armored vehicles rallying during the December 2015 attack in San Bernardino, California, according to AAP. Then Stefanovic’s footage of reporting the Paris attacks cuts the video.
The video also featured pictures of U.S. President Barack Obama and his French counterpart François Hollande. These were followed by images of bodies scattered across the scene of the Paris attacks in November 2015, which killed 130 people and injured about 350 others. The narrator of the video is heard praising the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, AAP reported.
The ISIS video also showed footage of fighters training, and carrying weapons and children in their arms. The video also showed so-called ideal life under the Islamic State group. Children in ISIS-held areas are seen building sandcastles, while men snorkel and catch fish with a picturesque backdrop, according to AAP.
The narrator of the video also reportedly warned of Paris-style attacks. Although Nine Network declined to comment, Stefanovic posted a response on Twitter: “Make sure all you isil b------- tune in Monday. We are giving away heaps of cash and good times.”
Another ISIS video released late Saturday purportedly showed a French-speaking militant executing alleged apostates and spies in Iraq. The militant also threatened attacks against Western countries.
