URGENT: Video shows beheading of second American journalist

DUBAI (Reuters) - The Islamic State militant group released a video purporting to show the beheading of U.S. hostage Steven Sotloff, the SITE monitoring service reported on Tuesday. A masked figure in the video also issued a threat against a British hostage, a man the group named as David Haines, and warned governments to back off "this evil alliance of America against the Islamic State", the monitoring service said.

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya's Olympic 800m champion and world record-holder David Rudisha has withdrawn from next month's World Championships in Moscow, his management team said on Tuesday.

Rudisha's participation had been in doubt because of a slow-healing knee injury sustained while running in New York's Central Park.

"It is just not possible for David to effectively defend his world title in Moscow, so we announced this morning his withdrawal," his coach, Colm O'Connell, told Reuters on Tuesday.

Speaking from Iten, some 400km north-west of Nairobi, the Irishman said Rudisha's manager James Templeton had informed Athletics Kenya and the IAAF of the decision.

"He is improving, but the time factor is essential and a matter of concern to us. It's only one month to the worlds and we don't want to push and make it difficult for him and risk a recurrence of the injury," said O'connell.

The east African nation held its trials on Saturday and Anthony Chemut, Ferguson Rotich and Jeremiah Mutai earned 800 meter places in the squad heading for Moscow.
