CNN’s Brian Todd reports on a Danish former ISIS hostage speaking out on his captors, saying “Jihadi John” made the hostage dance the tango with him.
Danish Photographer and hostage was released when his family paid a large ransom. The United States has discouraged paying ransom for hostages. Seven other journalists are known to have been released for ransom: French journalists Didier François, Edouard Elias, Nicolas Hénin, and Pierre Torres, and Spanish journalists Marc Marginedas, Javier Espinosa, and Ricardo García Vilanova.
He told Danish media that he was forced to dance the Tango with “Jihadi John” and then was beaten. He said he made sure he didn’t look “Jihadi John” in the eyes because it would mean more beatings.

“Jihadi John” has been identified as a British-Kuwaiti man Mohammed Emwazi.
