John Cantlie ISIS Hostage

Investigators ponder fate of John Cantlie, lone Briton still held by ISIS

IRBIL, IRAQ John Cantlie, the Briton taken hostage in Syria in November 2012 who became the star of nine of the group’s propaganda videos late last year and early this year, has disappeared again – baffling hostage recovery investigators familiar with his case.

Cantlie was taken hostage on Thanksgiving Day 2012 with American journalist James Foley during a reporting trip. Foley was later beheaded in a grisly video that the Islamic State posted in August 2014, the first of seven U.S., British and Japanese hostages to be executed over the next five months.
