Paris, October 4, 2014

The French President is outraged at the despicable crime perpetrated by the terrorist group Daesh [ISIL], which has murdered Alan Henning, a humanitarian volunteer in Syria kidnapped in Al-Dana in December 2013.

This crime, like the previous ones, will not go unpunished. France will continue to support the Iraqi people and authorities in their fight against terrorism.

The Head of State extends his condolences to Alan Henning’s family and shares the British people’s grief in the face of this barbarism./.
