From SkyNews, with thanks to Dehra Dun:
British hostage Ken Bigley has appeared caged, chained and pleading for his life in new video footage.
In the harrowing recording, shown on the Arab TV channel al Jazeera, Mr Bigley renews his appeal for Tony Blair to meet the kidnappers’ demands and save his life.
He then breaks down in tears as he accuses Mr Blair of ignoring his plight.
“He doesn’t care about me. I’m just one…” he says before holding his head in his hands and sobbing.
He said his captors did not want to kill him.
I hope Blair doesn’t give in to their demands — not because I don’t care about Mr. Bigley, but because if he does, many more will be killed by the emboldened jihadists.
