title : American Hostage Kayla Mueller Defended Christian Faith to ISIL Executioner
summary : Although U.S. hostage Kayla Mueller was tortured, verbally abused, forced into slave labor for ISIL commanders in Syria and reported raped by the group's top leader, Mueller's fellow hostages said in ABC News' "20/20" broadcast, "The Girl Left Behind," that Mueller never surrendered hope or her Christian faith. The Prescott, Az., humanitarian aid worker was a courageous 26-year-old who inspired the other hostages, they said. She was killed during February 2015, during one of a dozen Jordanian airstrikes in Al-Raqqah.
