ISIS militants have beheaded four members of a football team after declaring the sport anti-Islamic.
The extremists banned organised sports like football when they took over Raqqa in Syria more than two years ago.
Fans in the city used to flock to watch Al-Shabab play matches in the city’s large stadium.

Photographs of the the aftermath of the gruesome execution, together with snaps of three of stars lining up for their side in the days before ISIS invaded, were released in a series of tweets by protest group, Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently.

The men were named as Osama Abu Kuwait, Ihsan Al Shuwaikh, Nehad Al Hussein and Ahmed Ahawakh.
The group initially said three players had been killed by the terror group but later added a fourth name to the list.

Last year militants executed 13 teenage boys for watching the Asian Cup football match between Iraq and Jordan.
The young football fans had been caught watching the game on television in the Iraqi city of Mosul, which is controlled by the Islamic State.
