ISIS militants release video of apparent beheading of captured journalist James Foley

The ISIS militants who've terrorized Iraq appear to have killed their first American victim.

The group released a horrifying video showing the execution of James Foley - a journalist kidnapped in Syria back in 2012.

Foley's whereabouts were unknown until this video was released.

The graphic video shows the apparent beheading of the American photojournalist and threatened to kill another kidnapped American newsman unless the United States pulls out of Iraq.

Foley disappeared in Syria on Thanksgiving 2012.

The United States says it won't give in to terrorist demands.

"Most immediately they want to halt the airstrikes, but that simply is not going to happen," says Rep. Adam Schiff, of California.
