White House press secretary Josh Earnest adds in a statement Sunday that the group’s barbarity “knows no bounds.”

Video purporting to show the mass beheading of Coptic Christian hostages was released Sunday by IS.

The Associated Press could not independently verify the video. But the Egyptian government and the Coptic Church, which is based in Egypt, have said the video is authentic.
