Tokyo's Metropolitan Police Department reported that the video "has a high degree of credibility," Nakatani was quoted.

The Japanese government was trying to authenticate the video with alleged captive beheading, public broadcaster NHK said on Sunday.

Goto reportedly went to Syria in October 2014 in order to negotiate the release of Haruna Yukawa, a Japanese security company executive. The IS extremists demanded earlier a $200-million ransom for the two Japanese captives.
