(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) A day after the beheading of second US hostage in Syria, the US government vowed Wednesday that killers would not beat the rap and will be brought to justice sooner or later.

"When terrorists anywhere around the world have murdered US citizens, the United States held them accountable, no matter how long it took, and those who have murdered James Foley and Steven Sotloff in Syria should know that the United States will hold them accountable too, no matter how long it takes," Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement released by the Department of State.

Kerry strongly deplored the brutal acts of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and its killing of civilians, particularly journalists.

"Yesterday, the world bore witness again to the unfathomable brutality of ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) terrorist murderers when we saw Steven Sotloff, an American journalist who left home in Florida to tell the story of brave people in the Middle East, taken fm us in an act of medieval savagery by a coward hiding behind a mask," Kerry said in a statement released by the State Department.


Sotloff "was a driven and courageous journalist, reporting from places like Syria, Libya and Egypt," Kerry said. His reporting "was as empathetic as his killers are evil. He focused on the stories of average people trapped in war, and documented their day-in and day-out struggle for dignity." The US government has used every military, diplomatic and intelligence tool it has to save US hostages, "and we always will," Kerry said.

"Our special operations forces bravely risked a military operation to save these lives, and we have reached out diplomatically to everyone and anyone who might be able to help. That effort continues, and our prayers remain, as they always are, with the families of all hostages who remain trapped in Syria today." "Barbarity, sadly, is not new to our world," Kerry said. "Neither is evil. We have taken the fight to it before, and we are taking the fight to it today."
