U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) tonight released the following statement regarding the horrific murder of New Hampshire photojournalist James Foley:
"Our hearts are broken for the Foley family. James was an innocent civilian who was bravely performing his job as a journalist. This barbaric and heinous act shocks the conscience and highlights the truly evil nature of the terrorists we confront, who must be defeated. My thoughts and prayers are with James Foley's family at this extremely difficult time."
