(CNN) — A short video released by ISIS on Friday shows the apparent beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning. In the same video, the terror group threatened the life of an American aid worker.

A taxi driver from near Manchester, England, Alan Henning was part of a team of volunteers that traveled to Syria in December to deliver food and water to people affected by the Middle Eastern country’s devastating civil war.

He was abducted the day after Christmas by masked gunmen, according to other people in the aid convoy.

Last week, the British foreign office released an audio file of Henning pleading for his life. His wife made a public plea for ISIS to spare his life. For months UK residents have adorned their homes with yellow ribbons as a show of support for Henning.
