Kayla Mueller: She touched the heart of the world, says family

The aunts of aid worker Kayla Mueller have been paying tribute to the 26-year-old, who was held by Islamic State militants in Syria, and whose death was confirmed by the US.

Ms Mueller, 26, was abducted while working in Aleppo, Syria in 2013.

Speaking in Arizona, Terri Crippes and Lori Lyon spoke about her legacy.

''Kayla has touched the heart of the world... the world grieves with us, the world mourns with us, the world wants to be more like Kayla.''
