MIAMI - US President Barack Obama met on Thursday with the family of American journalist Steven Sotloff, who was beheaded last year by Islamic State terrorists.

The White House said Obama met with Sotloff's parents Art and Shirley and his sister, Lauren, while he was in Florida for fundraising and a briefing on the upcoming hurricane season.

"The president expressed his and the first lady's condolences for Steven's death," White House spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said.
