HSBC employees sacked for ISIL-style mock beheading

HSBC has sacked six employees after a video emerged of them engaging in an Islamic State group-style "mock beheading".

British newspaper The Sun revealed that a video posted on Instagram but later deleted, showed five men wearing balaclavas force an Asian colleague to kneel down while wearing an orange jumpsuit.

One banker then reportedly yells "Allahu Akbar", meaning "God is great", and pretends to execute his prisoner with a coat hanger.

The workers filmed the stunt while be on a team-building day organised by HSBC inBirmingham, England, according to The Sun.

On Monday the bank apologized for its employees.
