ISIS Sends Audio Message of Hostage Alan Henning to His Wife “Pleading for His Life”
According, to ISIS accounts, the terror group sent and audio message to Henning’s wife of Alan pleading for his life.
Barbara Henning released her own plea for his safety.
Saying she’d just heard her husband “pleading for his life,” the wife of Alan Henning delivered her own plea to ISIS on Tuesday, as well as a slap at the extremist group for threatening to kill the British aid worker who’d only gone to Syria to “help his Muslim friends.”
In a message released by the British foreign office, Barbara Henning said that she had received an audio file with her husband’s voice, but hasn’t been able to contact those holding him.
“Islamic State continue to ignore our pleas to open dialogue,” she said.
So — without the chance to talk to his captors confidentially — Barbara Henning instead made made another public pitch for her husband’s life.
Barbara Henning noted the widespread sentiment voiced by Muslim leaders around the world calling for Alan’s release. They include Shaykh Haitham Al Haddad, a judge on the Shariah Council in London, who has said that “whatever your grievance with American or British foreign policy, executing this man is not the answer.”
“I have seen Muslims across the globe question Islamic State over Alan’s fate,” Barbara Henning said. “The voices of the people have spoken out loud and clear.”
