Getting a little desperate, the terrorists are now taking individual children hostage and demanding ransom for them. The latest hostage is a seven year-old Lebanese boy. Obviously this has nothing to do with any ideology and is simply a demand for money.
Gunmen in Iraq have abducted a 7-year-old Lebanese boy and are demanding $150,000 for his release, Lebanon's official news agency reported Sunday.
The boy, identified as Mohammed Hamad, was kidnapped two days ago on his way home from school in the Diyala province east of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, the state-run National News Agency said. The boy's father, Abdel-Ghani Hamad, has lived in Iraq for 30 years.
