Fr. Franҫois Mourad

A video spread on YouTube shows the violent beheading of two people, one of whom was said to be an archbishop and the other a young man, by individuals affiliated with Islamic militia Al-Nusra Front, in Idlib, Syria. Evidence suggests that one of the victims is Franciscan monk Francois Mourad, who was kidnapped last Sunday from the Latin Convent in Ghassaniya village, in the northern countryside, after the monastery was looted and destroyed.
