Family Pleads for American Hostage's Life

The family of Luke Somers, the American hostage being held in Yemen, have taken to the internet to ask for his release.

"Luke is only a photojournalist, and he is not responsible for any of the actions the U.S. government has taken," says Jordan Somers, Luke's brother.

Luke's mother Paula Somers goes on to ask for mercy, saying Luke "is all that we have."
