Philip Hammond condemns reported barbaric murder of Japanese hostage by ISIL.
The Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:
“If confirmed, the brutal murder of Haruna Yukawa is a barbaric and despicable act. My thoughts are with the family as they come to terms with this terrible news.
“This only serves to underline the depravity of ISIL: their brutality cannot be allowed to succeed.”
