AFP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIGITAL ALTERATIONS TO THIS PICTURECondemning an act of “pure evil”, Prime Minister David Cameron vowed Sunday that Britain would do all it can to catch the killers of a British aid worker beheaded by the Islamic State. In its third apparent beheading of a Western hostage in less than a month, IS on Saturday released a video showing the execution of Briton David Haines and threatening the life of another British captive. As President Barack Obama offered US support for its “ally in grief”, Cameron faced growing calls to allow Britain’s military to help in Washington’s planned assault against the jihadist group that has seized parts of Syria and Iraq. France on Sunday condemned the “heinous murder” of Haines, urging international action against the jihadist group.
