6 Fired at London Bank for Staging, Posting Mock ISIS Beheading

Tuesday, 07 July 2015 03:09 PM

HSBC has fired six employees in London who staged a mock Islamic State group-style killing during a team-building exercise.

The Sun newspaper reported Tuesday the footage posted online showed five workers wearing overalls and balaclavas laughing as a South Asian colleague wearing an orange jumpsuit knelt at their feet.

One held a coat hanger as a pretend knife while another held the kneeling man by the shoulders. One employee then yells "Allahu Akbar!" — Arabic for "God is great" — a phrase often used before ISIS hostages are slain.

HSBC says in a statement it had fired those involved in the "abhorrent" video as soon as the Sun brought it to their attention. The company apologized for any offense the video caused.
