Source: ISIS wants more hostages

An ISIS outfit based in northeastern Syria has been drawing up plans to kidnap Westerners and others in neighboring countries, a source told CNN.

The source said the terrorists want to go into countries such as Lebanon and Jordan and bring hostages back to Syria, where they could be used in ISIS propaganda videos, according to intelligence gathered on the planning.

After producing at least seven highly publicized clips in which hostages were beheaded, ISIS may believe it needs to kidnap more people.

“It is a cash business. We should make no mistake about it,” Rogers said.
