Extremists told family Foley would be killed

In this file photo, John and Diane Foley, parents of James Foley, are seen listening to a panel discussion about the importance and dangers of reporting on world conflicts, in Boston, on May 3, 2013Jihadists told the family of American journalist James Foley this month that he would be executed, one of the media outlets he worked for said Wednesday, after he was beheaded. Philip Balboni, chief executive of news site GlobalPost, to which Foley contributed while covering the war in Libya and then Syria before his abduction there in 2012, said the journalist’s captors had been in touch in the weeks before his murder. “We’ve had communication with the captors, and there was at one time a receptivity to a negotiation that would lead to a release,” Balboni told MSNBC television. Balboni then stated that, after the beginning of US air strikes in Iraq — the first since the end of the Iraq war — the Islamic State warned the Foleys that their son would be killed.
