British journalist John Cantlie appears in a new ISIS propaganda video recently recorded in Mosul, Iraq, Iraqi security officials told CNN.

In the video, which was published Wednesday, a bearded Cantlie appears thin, wearing a heavy dark coat and black trousers. He describes how allied forces bombed four of five bridges that span the River Tigris and how the bridges’ destruction has hurt residents of the city.

He also talks about the bombing of water pipes that supply large parts of the city. The last time Cantlie was seen alive was in a July ISIS propaganda video.
