A video has been posted online purporting to show the beheading by the Islamic State group of British aid worker David Haines, who went missing in Syria last year. The murder of British hostage David Haines was an “act of pure evil”, David Cameron has said after the release of a video of his beheading. The 44-year-old aid worker was seized in Syria in 2013. He was being held by Islamic State militants who have already killed two US captives. The latest video also includes a threat to kill a second British hostage. The PM vowed to do everything possible to find the killers. Mr Haines’s family said he would be “missed terribly”. This tragedy comes following the similar murders of america civilians James Foley & Steven Sotloff.
