British Prime Minister David Cameron has responded to the news of the beheading of aid worker Alan Henning by Islamic State terrorists.
Speaking late last night the Prime Minister said:
“The brutal murder of Alan Henning by ISIL shows just how barbaric and repulsive these terrorists are.
“My thoughts and prayers tonight are with Alan’s wife Barbara, their children and all those who loved him.
“Alan had gone to Syria to help get aid to people of all faiths in their hour of need. The fact that he was taken hostage when trying to help others and now murdered demonstrates that there are no limits to the depravity of these ISIL terrorists.
“We will do all we can to hunt down these murderers and bring them to justice.”
A video released by the Islamic State on Friday evening showed the jihadi beheader bringing forward American citizen Peter Kassig and threatening to kill him should the U.S. continue its involvement in Syria and Iraq.
Henning was abducted in December after transporting an aid convoy into Syria. Nicknamed “Gadget,” he has been described as a “kind and funny” man who had traveled into a dangerous area in order to help those less fortunate.
