Washington DC- U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a statement on the brutal murder of American Peter Kassig:
“My thoughts and prayers are with Peter Kassig’s family and friends during this difficult time. ISIS’s murder of Peter Kassig, an American and former Army Ranger, was an act of brutality. By all accounts, Peter worked tirelessly to help others through his humanitarian work. Before he was captured, he worked in Syria and neighboring countries helping refugees and those caught in the middle of the Syrian conflict.
Peter’s service is a reminder of the bravery of humanitarian aid workers who risk their lives to help those in conflict zones around the world.”
