The mother of murdered soldier Lee Rigby, who was hacked to death in the street last year by Islamist fanatics, "wept" when she saw the news about the beheading of US journalist James Foley.
Lyn Rigby told the Sun on Sunday (£) that the American's violent death brought back nightmarish memories of her son's killing.
She said: "The moment I saw the news about James's beheading, I felt my heart turn over and I just wept."
She added that she supported calls from Foley's parents not to watch the fanatics' video, saying: "By refusing to watch, you are making a stand against the terrorists who are trying to push a nasty and violent agenda."
Fusilier Rigby, a 25-year-old father-of-one, was knocked down by a car near Woolwich Barracks in south east London and subjected to a frenzied knife attack in broad daylight. Michael Adebolajo and fellow extremist Michael Adebowale were this year convicted of his murder.

Police have managed to track down images of two burglary suspects from bus tickets recovered inside the coat of an intruder who broke into a Manchester home.
The 61-year-old victim was confronted by two burglars when he went to investigate a noise in the bedroom of his house in Churchstone Walk, Baguley, on May 17.
As the offenders left, the householder grappled with one of the men and was able to pull off his jacket.
It was only after they had gone that he noticed valuable and sentimental items of jewellery had been taken from his home.
As part of the police investigation, officers recovered bus tickets in the pocket of the jacket taken from the offender.
Police have now released CCTV images from the bus of two men they are keen to trace.
– PC Rob Crossley, Greater Manchester Police
“The victim, a man in his 60s, was obviously taken aback to find two men rummaging through his bedroom.
“In the melee following the initial shock he has been able to remove a jacket from one offender and this has given us some positive lines of enquiry.
“From the jacket we recovered a ticket and from the ticket we identified a bus used by the offenders.
“Now we are releasing CCTV images of two suspects we would like to trace.
“We have made numerous efforts to identify the pair and we are now keen for any further help from the public.
“If anyone has any information that can assist – either about the two in the image or about the items stolen in the burglary - I would encourage them to contact us.”
