‘I would not wish this on any mother’: Procession carries Canadian killed by ISIL

NIAGARA FALLS — Since the day she found out her son had been killed in Syria, Tina Martino wanted one thing: to bury him at home in Niagara Falls. She got her wish on Wednesday, but it was a long, hard wait.

The ISIL extremists who killed her son, Nazzareno Tassone, on Dec. 21 not only posted photos of him on the Internet, they also kept his body like a trophy while Martino sat at home, helpless and heartbroken.
