The Islamic State released the seventh video of journalist John Cantlie who was taken hostage in November 2012.

The video “From Mosul Inside,” Cantlie is seen as reporting from Mosul and describing that the city is in normalcy now, NDTV reported.

Unlike the previous five videos where he was seen inside a dark room, this video shows him traveling in the city in a car, walking in the busy streets, shopping, etc. The sixth video too was similar to this one.

He is seen as describing the city as normal and being in a state of “business as usual after years of oppression.” “This is not a city living under fear,” he tells in the video.

The video which was posted on Youtube was continuously taken down but the IS kept posting it again in various pro-jehadi groups.
