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.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - MF Global Holdings revealed new details about its proposed bankruptcy plan in court papers filed on Friday.

Initial members of a director selection committee led by representatives of its hedge fund creditors have been selected. They will select board members for the company as it liquidates.

The initial members are Andrew Shannahan, of Knighthead Capital LLC; Joe Kronsberg, of Cyrus Capital Partners; and Austin Saypool, of Silver Point Capital, according to one of the filings on Friday.

A trust agreement, called the "MF Global Plan Trust," will aid and implement the firm's liquidation plan, according to the filing.

MF Global, run by former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, is liquidating after filing for bankruptcy in 2011. Regulators determined that the firm misappropriated money in customer trading accounts to cover liquidity gaps as it teetered on the brink. Corzine has denied any wrongdoing.

The filings also reveal terms of a $70 million senior secured credit facility to finance the liquidation.

The company's creditor payout plan was proposed earlier this year by a group of its hedge fund creditors, led by Silver Point, Knighthead and Cyrus.

Louis Freeh, the trustee liquidating MF Global's estate, cooperated with the hedge funds on later drafts of the plan.
