CAIRO (AP) — The Islamic State group says it has killed a Norwegian and a Chinese captive after demanding ransom for their release two months ago.

The announcement came in the latest issue of the extremist group's English-language magazine on Wednesday, which contained a page that appeared to show the bodies of the two captives.

It bears the caption "executed after being abandoned by kafir nations and organizations." ''Kafir" is the Arabic word for infidel.

The group had earlier identified the Norwegian man as Ole Johan Grimsgaard-Ofstad, 48, from Oslo, and the Chinese man as Fan Jinghui, 50, a freelance consultant from Beijing. It did not say when or where the two were captured. The IS group controls large areas in Iraq and Syria.
