Security Minister Says ISIS Hostage John Cantlie Is Still Alive

  • It is the first official confirmation that John Cantlie is believed to be alive

He said previous statements by United Kingdom officials had hinted that the Briton was probably dead, and Security Minister Ben Wallace has not explained why he believes Mr Cantlie is still a captive.

It's over six years since the British journalist John Cantlie went missing in Syria.

Cantlie, however, appeared in several subsequent videos released by IS in which he delivered jihadist propaganda to the camera in the style of a news report.

Later that year, in October, French magazine Paris Match quoted an IS fighter who said he had seen Mr Cantlie alive and working for IS seven or eight months ago.

Asked generally about British hostages around the world, Wallace said the United Kingdom does not pay ransom and discourages other countries from doing so.

Cantlie was kidnapped by the militant group along with American journalist James Foley, who was eventually beheaded by the extremists.

In 2014 he appeared in another video wearing an orange prisoner jumpsuit and revealing how prisoners were waterboarded for trying to escape.

A lot of them feature him speaking from Mosul as well as the Syrian cities of Aleppo and Kobani.

Fellow captive Javier Espinosa, a Spanish journalist, said Mr Foley had escaped from a room but waited for Mr Cantlie rather than run for freedom himself.

Mr Cantlie is the last remaining United Kingdom hostage held by IS.
