American freelance photo-journalist James Wright Foley has been beheaded by ISIS in a video message posted today online and titled as ‘A Message to America’. Foley, pictured right and top left, has been missing since November 2012 after being taken hostage while reporting from Syria. ISIS posted the extremely graphic video to social media as proof of their barbaric action. Foley addresses the camera before he is killed and labels the US government his real killers as a man in black robes armed with a gun stands over him. The journalist then leaves a haunting message for his brother, John, who is in the US Air Force. ‘I died that day, John, when your colleagues dropped that bomb on these people.
They signed my death certificate’. ISIS, which has claimed control of most of northern Iraq and parts of Syria is threatening to kill Time journalist Joel Sotloff unless President Obama ceases attacks on the terror group. Foley’s family including parents John and Diane, of Rochester, New Hampshire, bottom left, had publicly appealed for their son’s release.
