(Washington, DC) -- Secretary of State John Kerry is speaking out against the horrific beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff. Sotloff was killed by ISIS militants. Speaking at the State Department this morning, Secretary Kerry called it an act of "unfathomable brutality" and "medieval savagery by a coward hiding behind a mask." Sotloff was captured last year while reporting on the civil war in Syria. ISIS recently beheaded James Foley, another U.S. journalist.
