MOSCOW, October 4 (RIA Novosti) - UK Prime Minister David Cameron has issued a statement in which he pledges to "use all the assets" in order to find and help hostages taken by the Islamic State (IS) and defeat the militant group, Sky News reported Saturday.

"We will use all the assets we have as we have been up to now to try and find these hostages, to try and help these hostages, to help their families and do everything we can to defeat this organisation which is utterly ruthless, senseless and barbaric in the way it treats people," Sky News quoted Cameron as saying Saturday.

Cameron's statement follows the Friday beheading by the Islamic State of Alan Henning, a British volunteer aid worker in Syria who was abducted in Syria last December. The Islamic State had earlier beheaded several other citizens of the United Kingdom and the United States.

The IS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), has been fighting the Syrian government since 2012. In June 2014, the group extended its attacks to northern and western Iraq, declaring a caliphate on the territories over which it had control.
