This undated family handout photo shows British man Alan Henning, currently held hostage by Islamic State (IS) and whose life was threatened in the IS video in which they beheaded David Haines. British officials have dropped efforts to prevent the naming of hostage Alan Henning. Henning is the hostage threatened in the latest Islamic State video, which announced the beheading of hostage David Haines. In the video, Henning is shown briefly on camera and also threatened with death. British officials and Henning’s family had asked the press not to publish his name out of concern for his safety, but that request was dropped Sunday afternoon. Britain's prime minister says Islamic State terrorists pose a "massive" security threat that cannot be ignored. David Cameron says the extremists who beheaded two American journalists and now a British aid worker "are not Muslims, they are monsters."
