A GROUP headed by al-Qaeda-linked operative Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi today said it had kidnapped two drivers from a Turkish firm in Iraq and threatened
to behead them in 48 hours.
The death threat would be carried out unless the company pulled out of the country, according to a report on Al-Jazeera TV.
"The Jamaat al-Tawhid wa al-Jihad (Unification and Holy War group) in Iraq announced that it had abducted two drivers working for a Turkish firm
which ferries goods to US forces in Iraq from Turkey," the Arab station reported.
