New threat to kill China hostages

Story.Chineseworkers.Ap From “A group calling itself ‘The Islamic Resistance Movement,’ has issued a new video calling for the Chinese government to issue a statement saying it will not allow its citizens to work for Americans in Iraq, threatening to kill eight Chinese hostages.

The men were shown on a video from the Islamic group that surfaced Tuesday saying the men had been taken captive.

An official in China’s embassy in Baghdad confirmed the men were from China, but said they apparently never worked in Iraq, and probably had been trying to leave Iraq after they were unable to find jobs.”
