SHAHEEN STATEMENT ON THE MURDER OF JAMES FOLEY BY ISIL TERRORISTS

August 19, 2014

U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) released the following statement on the murder of New Hampshire photojournalist James Foley by ISIL terrorists:

“James Foley was a respected and accomplished journalist who devoted his life to one of our most important freedoms – the freedom of press. Everyone who knew him recognized his dedication to his work and his commitment to sharing his eye-witness reporting of world events. His murder was a cowardly act of terrorism and underscores the threat that ISIL poses to the freedoms we hold dear. My thoughts are with the Foley family and everyone who knew and loved James, both in New Hampshire and around the world.”
