Moammar Gadhafi has responded to the recent Roy Hallums taped plea
asking for Arab leaders, and in particular Gadhafi, to intervene in his hostage situation. The terrorists are demanding $12 million dollars in ransom.
Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on Wednesday called on Iraqi insurgents to release a U.S. hostage, responding to the captive's plea for his intervention.
In a videotape broadcast Tuesday, Roy Hallums asked Arab leaders, singling out Gadhafi, to save his life. The video showed Hallums, 56, speaking with a rifle barrel pointed at his head.
"As a response to the begging, we ask the Iraqi resistance in the name of Islam and Arabism to free him, implementing the principle of forgiveness," the Arab satellite news channel Al-Jazeera quoted Gadhafi as saying in a statement.
