BREAKING: James Foley killers wanted ” ransom of $132m”

Posted: August 21, 2014 in World News

Islamic State jihadists demanded a $132m (£80m)
ransom for the release of US journalist James
Foley, his employer GlobalPost has said.

A video of Mr Foley’s beheading was released by
the militants earlier this week.

In it, they threatened to kill another American if the
US did not stop its air strikes against Islamic State
(IS) in northern Iraq. US air strikes have continued near Mosul despite the warning.
