The IBTimes reported:

Islamic State (Isis) militants have executed two young media activists in Raqqa, the de facto capital of the caliphate, in an alleged attempt to score a victory against renowned group Syria Is Being Slaughtered Silently (RSS).

A video released by the jihadist group shows the two activists in their early 20s, named as Bashar Abdul Atheem and Faisal Hasan al-Habib, wearing orange jumpsuits and being interrogated about their anti-IS activities, which supposedly include handing out leaflets criticising Sharia law.

The duo was forced to confess that they monitored the activities of IS and were paid $400 (£260) for taking pictures of oil wells around Raqqa province, according to IBTimes India. The footage ends with the two activists, who had been previously tied around their waists to a tree trunk, being shot dead by two IS militants wearing balaclavas and camouflage.

Abu Mohammed, a media activist for RSS, confirmed to IBTimes UK via Skype that the two activists were executed by IS, but denied the claim that they work with them.
