ISIS Behead British Hostage, Post Footage on The Internet Showing Another HostageFeatured, Latest News, News, World News Saturday, September 13th, 2014
Islamic State militants have released footage claiming to show the beheading of British hostage David Haines.
The aid worker, 44, was captured by ISIS in Syria in March 2013.
ISIS had threatened to kill Mr Haines if world leaders do not bow to their demands.
Saturday night, the extremists posted a new video lasting 2minutes and 30 seconds which appears to show the beheading of David Haines.
At the end of the video, ISIS paraded another hostage.
The militants have not responded to any of the family’s attempts to make contact so far, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said.
Mr Haines was born in East Yorkshire but raised in Perthshire, and before his capture was living in Croatia with his second wife Dragana.
He has a 17-year-old daughter with his first wife Louise, and a four-year-old daughter with Dragana who described him as a “fantastic man and father”.
Mr Haines was taken while working for ACTED, having previously helped people in Libya and South Sudan.
