By Linda Sieg and Kiyoshi Takenaka TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday called the apparent killing of a Japanese captive by Islamic State militants "outrageous and impermissible," and again called for the release of a Japanese journalist being held by the group. Abe, speaking to public broadcaster NHK, said chances were high that a recording and an image of what appeared to be the decapitated body of Japanese captive Harman Yukawa, which emerged late on Saturday, were authentic. Abe also called for the immediate release of the remaining Japanese captive, reporter Kenji Goto, and said he was putting top priority on saving Goto's life. "Again, I strongly demand that Mr. Kenji Goto not be harmed and be immediately released.
