Bulgarian hostage executed in Iraq
In a videotape aired by Aljazeera, an Iraqi group calling itself Al-Tawhid wa Al-Jihad said Tuesday it executed one of the two Bulgarian captives it seized last week.
The group said it would kill the second captive within 24 hours unless its demands were met.
On 9 July, the group claimed it had captured the two men in Iraq and said it would execute them unless US-led occupation forces in Iraq released all Iraqi detainees. (albawaba.com)
