BAGHDAD, Iraq – Kidnappers threatened in a new videotape broadcast Saturday to kill four Christian peace activists unless all Iraqi prisoners were released, saying they were giving the U.S. and Iraqi governments a “last chance” to save the hostages.
The tape dated Jan. 21 and broadcast on Al-Jazeera showed the four men “” two Canadians, an American and a Briton “” standing near a wall, before cutting away to another shot in which they were seated and talking, but their voices were not heard.
The newsreader said the group issued a statement with the tape saying it was the “last chance” for U.S. and Iraqi authorities to “release all Iraqi prisoners in return of freeing the hostages otherwise their fate will be death.” No deadline was set.
The previously unknown Swords of Righteousness Brigades has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping.
