isn't it some sort of tradition for the executioner to cover his head?
also, not showing the face hides identity. with identity hidden, numbers become hidden. Is this the same people everytime? different people
and really, why would they give away their identity?
as to why some hostages are released, i assume there are several groups, working independently of one another, doing these kidnappings. As such, they
are probably located in different areas, have different goals, etc.
