ISIS kidnapped a 26-year old American woman who was in Syria doing humanitarian work. They are now demanding $6.6 million for her ransom. According to a report:
The Islamic State militant group is holding hostage a young American woman who was doing humanitarian aid work in Syria, and the terror group is demanding $6.6 million and the release of U.S. prisoners for the life of the young woman.
The details of the ISIS ( Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) ransom demand and the abduction of the young aid worker were disclosed by a close friend of the hostage’s family in statements to ABC News.
The 26-year-old woman is the third American known to have been kidnapped by the militant group.
The Islamic State group recently threatened to kill American hostages to avenge the crushing airstrikes in Iraq against militants advancing on Mount Sinjar and the Kurdish capital of Irbil.
The 26-year-old woman was captured last year while working with three humanitarian groups in Syria. A representative for the family and U.S. officials asked that the woman not be identified out of fear for her safety.
