American Allegedly Killed by ISIS
Updated: Friday, September 19 2014, 10:59 AM CDT
BAGHDAD, IRAQ (CBS2/FOX28) - The family of an American photojournalist says their son was murdered by Islamic militants but U.S. officials are still working to figure out if the video showing the murder is real.
ISIS militants released the video Tuesday that allegedly shows the beheading of James Foley.
In the video Foley reads what appears to be a prepared statement calling for the end to U.S. airstrikes in Iraq.
He went missing in Syria two years ago while working for the Global Post.
In a statement released on Facebook, Foley’s mother mourned her son's loss, and called on kidnappers to spare the lives of remaining hostages.
Officials are now taking a close look at the video before they confirm the journalist was killed.
The president says he is being given constant updates.
ISIS claims to be holding another American journalist and has threatened to kill him if the United States continues military strikes in Iraq.
