Body found in Iraq 'unlikely' to be Japanese hostage


A body found in Iraq and sent to Kuwait for verification is unlikely to be that of a 24-year-old Japanese hostage threatened with execution, a Japanese government spokesman has said.

"The medical officers at the [Japanese] embassy in Kuwait examined the body and they concluded that it is not likely that it is the remains of Mr Koda ," Chief Cabinet Secretary Hiroyuki Hosoda said.

"His dental structure is completely different," Hosoda said.

No problems mate. It will be released by AP, but I doubt that they will show any of the footage.

Officials quoted residents as saying the body was found wrapped in an American flag.

An al-Qaeda-linked group led by Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi showed the 24-year-old Mr Koda on a video posted on a militant website last week.

The group had vowed to behead him within 48 hours unless Japan withdrew its troops from Iraq. Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi quickly rejected that demand, saying he would not give in to terrorists.

A different body was found yesterday by US troops between the towns of Tikrit and Balad, raising fears it was Mr Koda's. But doctors later determined it was not him.

Okay... for clarification, we have the bodies of two men of aparently Oriental extraction (this confused me until I read the news story.)

The first one, with no head, was found earlier and determined not to be the Japanese hostage. The second one (with the head placed on the back of the corpse) seems to match Japanese hostage Shosei Koda.

Appreciate the postings, folks. Please continue to post and link to updates of the story.

They found a Japanese body wrapped in a US flag while I know they are a coalition partner of the US and others Why our flag in particular.

The terrorists claimed the Japanese where commiting their own offenses towards the terrorists and they where being ordered to withdraw or else.

Not to mention no other body was found wrapped in an American flag where they.
