The murder of British aid worker David Haines, by militants from the Islamic State in Iraq the Levant (ISIL) has drawn condemnation for the international community.
The brutal act was described as ‘pure evil’ by British Prime Minister David Cameron, who vowed to hunt down the perpetraters, however long it took:
“The murder of David Haines at the hands of ISIL will not lead Britain to shirk our responsibility, with our allies, to deal with the threat that this organisation poses to it must strengthen our resolve.”
David Haines was captured in 2013 in Syria.
His career in the Humanitarian field included working for the UN.
Originally from Yorkshire, the family of the 44 year old father of two said he will be missed terribly.
