Iraq - Video of kidnapped Briton airs

A group calling itself the Islamic Shi’ite Resistance in Iraq has released a video showing one of five Britons kidnapped earlier this year. Although there is no direct threat to kill the hostages, the kidnappers have called for a British withdrawal within 10 days. The date on the tape was the 18th November. The men were taken from the Foreign Ministry in Baghdad in May, but little has been reported about them until today’s video release. The tape surfaced on the Arabic TV station al-Arabiya. [BBC]
