Survived Libya, beheaded in Syria


Before he was executed in Syria, photojourn­alist James Foley was investigat­ing Anton Hammerl’s death. He had been captured with Hammerl but was released after a few weeks. Little over a year later, in November 2012, Foley was abducted by Islamic militants in Syria. After almost two years of abuse and torture, he was beheaded on August 19 2014 in a barbaric execution recorded by his captors. Two of his alleged killers are in the US awaiting trial.
