‘Great, captured on Thanksgiving Day, killed on my Mom’s birthday’: ISIS hostage John Cantlie reveals the final words of beheaded fellow captive James Foley

British ISIS captive John Cantlie has revealed the haunting final words fellow hostage James Foley uttered minutes before he was executed by the bloodthirsty terror group.

According to the newest edition of the group’s propaganda magazine Dabiq, Mr Foley uttered: ‘Great, captured on Thanksgiving Day, killed on my Mom’s birthday’, before being led to his death.

War photographer Mr Cantlie, 45, was captured alongside Foley in Syria in November 2012 but has been kept alive by the group for propaganda purposes.
