A video released by ISIS supposedly shows the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning.


Before he is killed, Henning speaks to the camera, referencing the Britain’s Parliament decision to join the bombing campaign against ISIS. At the end of the video, ISIS shows an American aid worker, Peter Kassig, and threatens his life.

There is no reason to believe that the video is not authentic, a U.S. intelligence official told CNN, adding that U.S. officials are studying it.

A taxi driver from near Manchester, England, Alan Henning was part of a team of volunteers that traveled to Syria in December 2013 to deliver food and water to people affected by the Middle Eastern country’s devastating civil war.

He was abducted the day after Christmas by masked gunmen, according to other people in the aid convoy.

Last week, the British Foreign Office released an audio file of Henning pleading for his life. His wife made a public plea for ISIS to spare his life.[su_csky_ad]

            I still don’t find anything funny about a beheading, but again, that’s just me.
