It was a statement that Jim was an innocent journalist" who respected the people of Syria, where he was held, Balboni said in a telephone interview. On Tuesday, Islamic State militants stunned America with a gruesome video posted on YouTube showing the beheading of Foley, 40, by a masked, black-clad man who also threatened to kill a second American journalist, Steven Sotloff.
