The brother of murdered journalist James Foley has said the US government "could have done more" to free him and other American hostages from Islamic State militants.
Michael Foley told Yahoo! News' Katie Couric, "Other nations have done that and that's been a source of frustration for me."
“I really, really hope that Jim’s death pushes us to take another look at our approach to terrorist and hostage negotiation,” he said.
Asked about the US government's stance on not paying ransom demands, Michael Foley said, "I understand with such a large nation it's difficult to cover all the bases but, even taking the money aside, there's more that could have been done on Jim's behalf".
