ISIS is reportedly trying to sell the body of U.S. journalist James Foley, who was executed by the terrorist group in August, back to his family for $1 million.
Three intermediaries, who say they have links with the Islamic fundamentalist group and are in charge of negotiating the deal, have told the online news outlet Buzzfeed that ISIS would provide a DNA sample in advance to prove that the body was Foley’s. They also said that the exchange would take place across the Syrian-Turkey border.
However, according to one of the middlemen, a former Syrian rebel fighter who says he was approached by ISIS to mediate the deal, the Islamic State want the money before the body is handed over.
“They ask for $1 million, and they will send DNA to Turkey, but they want the money first,” the source told Buzzfeed. “They will not give the DNA without the money.”
