Interpol urges multinational response to ‘barbaric’ Foley murder
ISIS militants beheaded Foley, 40, and posted the video of the murder online, sparking global outrage
The head of the international police organization Interpol condemned on Thursday the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley and called for a global response to the threat posed by Islamic extremists.
“The barbaric murder of James Foley by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria group underlines the depths of its depravity as it wages its campaign of terror across Syria and Iraq,” Interpol chief Ronald Noble said in a statement.
Noble called on the world to remember the other innocent people held by “bloodthirsty terrorists who know neither compassion nor mercy.”
Given that the executioner appeared to be British, Noble urged a “multilateral response against the terror threat posed by radicalized transnational fighters travelling to conflict zones in the Middle East.”
ISIS militants beheaded Foley, 40, and posted the video of the murder online, sparking global outrage.
