12 Nepalese Hostages Killed, 1 Beheaded
In the video released by the Army of Ansar al-Sunna, one hostage is seen beheaded with a knife as he struggles with his captors. The other 11 are seen lying down, and then one by one shot in the back of the head. Nepal is not a member of the Coalition Forces nor is it involved in any way in Iraq. The twelve came to Iraq to work, nothing more. The same group has threatened to kill two French hostages if the Chirac government, which opposed the invasion of Iraq, does not lift a ban on the Islamic head-scarf in schools.
Execution and beheading pictures are here. Links to video also at this post.
