The United States is not aware of any specific threat to the U.S. homeland from ISIS militants, the Department of Homeland Security said Friday, after Britain raised its international terrorism threat level.Speaking just after the terrorism threat level was raised, British Prime Minister David Cameron pledged to plug gaps in Britain's armory to combat terror, describing the extremist threat posed by ISIS as being more dangerous than even that of Al-Qaeda.United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon slammed "brutal killings of civilians" by ISIS in northern Iraq, saying Friday that the Sunni radical group was tearing apart whole communities.The United States has carried out a wave of airstrikes against the jihadists in northern Iraq, helping Kurdish forces to claw back ground that was lost to the militants earlier this month.The video comes hot on the heels of another released by ISIS, showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley and threatening another kidnapped reporter Steven Sotloff with the same fate if U.S. airstrikes are not halted.
