Cameron: Ransoms Should Not be Paid to Terrorists


British Prime Minister David Cameron on Thursday defended the policy of not paying ransom to terrorist groups for the release of kidnapped civilians.

"I know it is difficult to hear and I have thought about this very carefully. I am absolutely convinced that the policy of not paying ransoms to terrorists for kidnaps is right,” the British premier said ahead of the NATO Summit in Wales.
