A new video was released of two of the 4 hostages taken hostage by a terrorist group calling itself The Swords Of Righteousness Brigade. In the video American Thomas Fox (seen at right) and Briton Norman Kember are seen in orange jumpsuits, blindfolded and in chains and call for the pull out of US and British troops in Iraq. Two Canadian hostages, James Loney and Harmeet Singh Sooden, were not seen on the video.
British hostage Norman Kember:
I'm a Christian Peacemaker. I'm a friend of Iraq. I have been opposed to this war, Mr. Blair's war, since the very beginning. I ask of him now, and the British government, to do all that they can to work for my release and the release of the Iraqi people from oppression.
