The Swords of Truth Brigades [Syouf al-Haq] in Iraq, today, December 7, 2005, issued the third video of the four captured members of the Christian Peacemaking Team and a message addressing a statement by the British Foreign Minister. The film, 4:40 minutes, includes statements by Norman Kember and Thomas Fox, both seen blindfolded and shackled, pleading to the British government and American people, respectively, to plea for their release and the release of the Iraqi people from the ?oppression? of the occupying troops.
A statement included with the video addresses a statement by British Foreign Minister Jack Straw, and extends the ultimatum to execute the prisoners by two additional days ?in order to see who is serious and who is a liar.?
The SITE Institute has tracked the group to one of the leading insurgency groups in Iraq.
