The message came in response to a video published by fighters of the Islamic State, a jihadist group, on Saturday, which shows beheading of Haines who was abducted in Syria in 2013.

“The brutal and atrocious crime by the ISIS terrorists, just like the recent infamous crimes against US journalists, cannot undermine the determination of the international community and all people of good will in the struggle against terrorism,” the Lithuanian ministry said.
