Teens held after 'puppies beheaded'

Two US teenagers face cruelty charges after they were accused of beheading three puppies with a machete and posting video on social media.

A caller alerted police after seeing the video on Snapchat, said Alabama District Attorney Michael Jackson.

Mr Jackson said the Wilcox County Sheriff's Department arrested 18-year-old Ashley Johnston and a 17-year-old who was not named because of his age. It was not immediately clear if Johnston had a lawyer. Mr Jackson says both teenagers are students at Wilcox Academy.

Snapchat automatically deletes postings after they are viewed. Sheriff Ernest Evans say investigators have not seen the posting, but have spoken to others who did.
