According to Peter Westmacott, UK’s ambassador in USA, the country is close to identifying the suspected British that was shown in the gruesome YouTube video that highlighted the execution of James Foley.
Westmacott declared in the CNN State Of The Union show:
“We are very close to identifying who this guy is.”
The news brings in more worries as many suspect a possible US military intervention against both the Islamic State and eventual contacts that can lead to the capture of the executioner.
At the same time, the video showcased another US citizen that was captured and that is to be executed in the event that US will continue supporting Iraq in its fight against the Islamic State.
