<p>In contrast, ABC&rsquo;s<em> World News Tonight</em> and <em>NBC Nightly News </em>offered news briefs on the development with the latter program also providing a full report from chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel on the brutality of female members of ISIS in enforcing Islamic laws on women living under the terrorist group&rsquo;s control.</p>
