UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday condemned the beheading of US journalist James Foley by Islamic State, which he said has been terrorizing people across Syria and Iraq, the United Nations said.



"The Secretary-General condemns in the strongest terms the horrific murder of journalist James Foley, an abominable crime that underscores the campaign of terror the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [today known as Islamic State] continues to wage against the people of Iraq and Syria," UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

"The perpetrators of this and other such horrific crimes must be brought to justice," he told reporters.
