U.S. Conducted Nearly a Dozen Iraq Airstrikes Since Yesterday

American fighter jets and drones conducted nearly a dozen airstrikes in Iraq since Tuesday, a U.S. official said, even as Islamic State militants threatened to kill a second American captive in retribution for any continued attacks.

The strikes came in the hours after militants released a gruesome video Tuesday showing U.S. journalist James Foley being beheaded.
