THE WIFE of ISIL hostage Alan Henning has made another direct approach and plea to the radical Islamic terrorist group ISIL to release her husband.
Responding to an audio message received through a third party, Barbara Henning responded and said:
“I am Barbara Henning, the wife of Alan Henning. I have a further message for Islamic State,” in a statement via the UK Foreign Office.
“An audio file of Alan pleading for his life has just been received by me. I and people representing me continue to reach out to those holding Alan.
“Islamic State continue to ignore our pleas to open dialogue.”
Mrs Hennings continued to say:
“We are at a loss why those leading Islamic State cannot open their hearts and minds to the facts surrounding Alan’s imprisonment and why they continue to threaten his life
“I have been told that he has been to a Sharia Court and found innocent of being a spy and declared to be no threat.
“I implore Islamic State to abide by the decisions of their own justice system. Please release Alan.”
PM David Cameron is scheduled to work with the United Nations over the next 48 hours to establish “what more the UK can do to contribute to international efforts to tackle the threat we face from ISIL”.
Cameron is considering a recall of Parliament possibly before Friday September 26 to establish if the UK should join allies in air strikes against the Islamic State.
