A final message from murdered James Foley to his family and friends has been released, after a fellow hostage committed it to memory and recited it.
The "letter", posted on a Facebook page dedicated to the late journalist, tells of Foley's experience with seventeen others in one cell, noting how his fellow captives proved a "huge help".
I have had weak and strong days. We are so grateful when anyone is freed; but of course, yearn for our own freedom. We try to encourage each other and share strength. We are being fed better now and daily. We have tea, occasional coffee. I have regained most of my weight lost last year.
The note then addresses individuals with often emotional messages, with Foley urging one loved one to "stay strong because I am going to need your help to reclaim my life".
