US President Barack Obama has described as "pure evil" the beheading of Peter Kassig, an American aid worker, by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ISIL. ISIL released a video on Sunday showing Kassig’s body, along with about

a dozen Syrian military personnel beheaded by the terrorists group.

Kassig, 26, who converted to Islam and took the name Abdul-Rahman, was captured in Syria last year.

Kassig's parents, Ed and Paula, said they were "heartbroken" and that their son "lost his life as a result of his love for the Syrian people and his desire to ease their suffering".
