John Cantlie’s first video surfaced last Thursday (file photo).

The group calling itself Islamic State on Tuesday released a second video of British photojournalist John Cantlie, whom it is holding hostage.

The previous one had been released a little less than a week ago.

Cantlie, who was captured in Syria in 2012, is shown wearing an orange T-shirt, saying he was abandoned by Britain.

He is, as in the previous recording, sitting at a desk, from which he looks directly at the camera.
