Brother of beheaded British hostage calls for troops to fight Islamic State

LONDON - Britain should put troops on the ground in the Middle East to fight Islamist militants who have taken control of large swathes of Iraq and Syria and killed Western hostages, the brother of a beheaded British aid worker has said.
Insurgents who are seeking to establish a caliphate in the region beheaded 47-year-old British aid worker Alan Henning last week, a killing condemned by Western leaders and British Muslim groups alike.
Britain ordered air strikes against targets in Iraq last month though Prime Minister David Cameron has not yet proposed strikes against Syria.
