The video of the execution of the American journalist in Iraq Islamists posted on social media platforms, Tuesday, has horrified public opinion around the world.



Journalists worldwide have changed their profile pictures on Facebook to black to express their condolences for James Foley’s family and friends.

The victim’s close friend, Andre Liohn, a Brazilian freelance photojournalist is who started the trend. Mr. Liohn has worked for such newspapers as Der Spiegel, L’Espresso, Time, and Newsweek.

Norwegian journalists later followed his example. One of the first was VG’s journalist Dag Bæverfjord.

Other profiled Norway media personnel have also taken part in the commemorative action on Facebook. These include NRK’s Sidsel Wold and TV2’s Fredrik Græsvik and Aage Aune.

The shocking footage showing Islamists beheading missing journalist James Foley in Iraq was recorded as a video-message to Barack Obama. USA government representatives, who asked to remain anonymous, have verified the video’s authenticity.

James Foley had been missing since 2012 and was considered to be captured by members of Jihad. He was an independent journalist, working for GlobalPost Internet information platform, and AFP news agency Mr. Foley’s family has confirmed his death.

Another American journalist is believed to be captured and detained by Jihadists, the members of Islamic State (IS), who have conquered lots of territories in Iraq and Syria.

US President Barack Obama has compared organization IS (Islamic State) to “a cancer”, and has encouraged public opinion to highlight what happened.

Amongst leaders in Europe who have acted is British Prime Minister, David Cameron, who shortened his holiday when the news about British accent of the murderer from the video was revealed.

British anti-terror personnel have already started their investigations into, and launched a hunt for the believed perpetrator of the brutal act.
