Taliban Faction Threatens to Kill 3 U.N. Workers

A breakaway faction of the Taliban movement on Saturday provided the first direct proof that it was holding three U.N. workers who were abducted last Thursday at gunpoint. The group threatened to execute them unless foreign troops left Afghanistan and Taliban prisoners were freed from jails here and at the Guantanamo Bay naval base. In satellite telephone calls to news agencies, Ishaq Manzoor, who identified himself as commander of a group called Jaish-e-Muslimeen, or Army of Muslims, provided two numbers he said were taken from identity cards of two of the hostages. Diplomatic sources identified one of the numbers as that of a bank card belonging to Annetta Flanigan of Northern Ireland, one of the three hostages.Full Story
