ISIS Takes Another American Hostage



(AP) The Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria -- which has threatened to kill American hostages -- is holding a young American woman who was doing humanitarian aid work in Syria. That's according to a family representative.

The 26-year-old woman is the third American known to have been kidnapped by the militant group. She was captured last year.

More than a week ago, an American freelance journalist was beheaded by the group, which had kidnapped him in November of 2012. A video of his beheading showed another missing American journalist, and warned that he would be killed next if U.S. airstrikes continue.

T
he U.S. government and the woman's family requested Tuesday that she not be named for fears of her safety.
