Iraq Militants Say Killed 12 Nepali Hostages–Site

An Iraqi militant group said it had killed 12 Nepali hostages and showed pictures of the killings on an Islamist Web site on Tuesday. “We have carried out the sentence of God against 12 Nepalis who came from their country to fight the Muslims and to serve the Jews and the Christians … believing in Buddhah as their God,” the statement by the military committee of the Army of Ansar al-Sunna said. The group posted a series of pictures showing two masked men, one in camouflage, holding down a hostage. The men then appeared to slit his throat and hold his severed head aloft. Others pictures showed a group of men lying face-down, with what appeared to be bullet wounds in their back. The statement was accompanied by a video. The Nepalis were taken hostage earlier this month as they entered Iraq to work as cooks and cleaners for a Jordanian company. The Ansar al-Sunna said it had kidnapped them because they were cooperating with U.S. troops in Iraq. Full Story
