Captors threaten to kill hostage unless UK troops pull out of Iraq

Kidnappers of five Britons held in Iraq say they will kill one of their captives unless UK troops pull out.

A video aired on an Arabic TV station features one of the hostages, who were seized in May, and sets a 10-day deadline.

In a statement, the militants said he would be killed as a “first warning”.

The five men – a computer expert and four guards – were abducted by a group disguised in police uniforms.

In London, the Foreign Office condemned the hostage-taking and urged the kidnappers to release the Britons unconditionally.
