Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has threatened to kill American hostage Luke Somers if the U.S. government doesn't meet its demands.
Somers was kidnapped in Yemen in September 2013. In the video purportedly released Thursday, Somers asks for help, “My name is Luke Somers. I'm 33 years old. I was born in England, but I carry American citizenship and have lived in America for most of my life.”
Crowds in the streets of New York chanted "I can't breathe" in protest over a grand jury's decision Wednesday not to indict a police officer in the death of an unarmed, black man he put in a chokehold.
The hashtag #ICantBreathe began trending on social media immediately after the grand jury’s decision was announced. Those were last words of Eric Garner who was killed in July while 29-year-old Officer Daniel Pantaleo and others tried to arrest him for illegally selling cigarettes.
