thanks, Jon, very much. To the war against Isis and growing concern about the brutal terror group as it spreads to more countries. The late evidence evidence that horistic execution of Christians in Libya. ABC's Martha Raddatz is just back from the region and, Martha, you saw firsthand the reaction to their terror tactics. You spoke to people on the ground there. What do they tell you? Reporter: Well, the people on the ground there, really quite frightening. They basically said this is an eye for an eye battle. People in Jordan were saying they would go in to fight with Isis.

But the influence of Isis is spreading beyond Syria and Iraq and the U.S. Really, robin, is struggling to find a way to stop it. Martha, you spoke to the people on the ground there who sympathize with Isis? Reporter: They really do. It is unbelievable. I was in a town in Jordan. The men and boys were all telling me we just want to go in. We just want to do this. It was really stunning, rocken and really quite frightening. We're glad you're back safe and sound, Martha. Thank you.
