(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) on Wednesday expressed deep shock at the appalling beheading of the US journalist James Foley who went missing in #Syria in 2012.

The killing has been claimed by the Islamic State in #Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in video footage posted online yesterday.

"This horrifying and cowardly killing of an unarmed man is another call for action to protect journalists and civilians who are utally targeted by armed groups and terrorists" said Jim Boumelha, IFJ President, in a statement.


"We now urge the international community to stand up to barbarity and say 'No More'," he said.

Beth Costa, IFJ's General Secretary, added: "We are deeply saddened by James' death. To his family, his mother and to all of his friends colleagues, we offer our deepest condolences."

The Brussels-based IFJ represents more than 600,000 journalists in 134 countries.
