Ransom Demand For American Female Hostage

(Undated) -- There are reports that the Islamic militant group ISIS is demanding a multi-million dollar ransom for a 26-year old American woman being held hostage. The woman was on a humanitarian mission in Syria when she was captured a year ago. Meanwhile, an American journalist held for nearly two years by Islamic militants is back home. Peter Theo Curtis arrived in Boston Tuesday to be reunited with his mother. Curtis' release came just five days after ISIS terrorists posted a video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley.
