Terrorists have released another video of Journalist Jill Carroll. This is the third to date and shows Jill Carroll in a hajib against a patterned rug background. Unlike the last video Jill Carroll was not seen crying or weeping, but did call for the demands of the terrorists to be met so that she could be freed.
Originally the terrorists demanded that all female prisoners be released by US and coalition forces. It seems they have added some more demands now. They have also extended the date, which was originally set at 72 hours and are now saying that they didn't kill an interpreter when they took Jill Carroll hostage. Are they trying to gain sympathy?
Portions of the video can be found here.
When will they let this woman go already?
People close to the kidnappers told the private TV channel earlier Friday that Carroll is "in a safe house owned by one of the kidnappers in downtown Baghdad with a group of women," Jassem Boudai told The Associated Press.
"Please just do whatever they want, give them whatever they want as quickly as possible," she said, adding she was speaking on Feb. 2.
Her kidnappers, who call themselves the Revenge Brigades, have demanded the release of all Iraqi women held in U.S. military and Iraqi jails.
"Sources close to the kidnappers informed Al-Rai TV that the kidnappers have set a Feb. 26 deadline for their demands to be met or they will execute her according to Shariah," he said, referring to Islamic law.
He said the kidnappers have "more specific demands than releasing all women from jail," but he refused to disclose these demands.
He said the sources told Al-Rai that Carroll was in good psychological condition and was doing housework with the other women in the place where she was being held.
