A father’s plea: No martyrdom for the British ISIS fighters

ROCHESTER, N. H. – The father of slain journalist James Foley hopes the two recently caught extremists will be put on trial and sentenced to life in prison.

The U.S. government has recently confirmed that the capture of two Brits who were part of a notorious Islamic State cell, tortured and beheaded Foley and more than two dozen other hostages.

In Rochester, his father, John Foley, told WMUR-TV that both his family and the nation have a need for justice. He says giving the men the death penalty she would be martyrs, so he would prefer to see them the rest of their lives in prison.

AMERICAN officials have confirmed that El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Amon Kotey, who grew up in London before traveling to the Middle East, were caught in the beginning of January, in the east of Syria.
