Wife of Alan Henning, Briton held by Islamic State, pleads for his release

MANCHESTER (Reuters) Alan Henning, a volunteer British aid worker being held by Islamic State (IS) militants, should be released unharmed, his wife said in a statement issued a week after his captors threatened to murder him.
