It’s the latest escalation between American forces and Islamist militants in Iraq and Syria.

On Monday, the Islamic State released a video purportedly showing the murder of American video journalist James Foley, who went missing in Syria in 2012.

Militants say the killing is in direct response to recent American air strikes in Iraq.

It has yet to be confirmed whether the man in the video is in fact Foley. President Obama is expected to make a statement on the killing Wednesday afternoon.
