**EDITORS PLEASE NOTE - STORY CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT**
A woman pleads for her life in Syria.
Amateur video which can not be independently verified by Reuters appears to show a woman begging her father to forgive her as she faces charges of adultery, in Islamic State controlled Hama.
Her father appears to be surrounded by Islamic State fighters.
He tells his daughter he is no longer her father.
She is prepared for her execution.
It is not clear exactly when the video was shot, or how the woman was found guilty of adultery - a conviction that would require at least four witnesses according to Islamic law.
