UK's Cameron condemns Islamic State as 'depraved'

The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) British Prime Minister David Cameron has condemned the Islamic State group as a "depraved organization" after the extremists released a video claiming to show that militants have beheaded U.S. aid worker Peter Kassig.

Cameron said that like others who have been "murdered in cold blood" by the group, Kassig was a selfless humanitarian worker who had gone to the region to help others.

Cameron said Sunday the video "underlines the deplorable depths to which these terrorists are prepared to go savagely murdering a compassionate man."

The video, which also purports to show extremists beheading a dozen Syrian soldiers, ends with a militant standing over what he calls the severed head of Kassig.

U.S. officials said they were working to determine the video's authenticity.
