New Dimension Of Terror


Recommended Posts

The beheading of Kim Sun-il, a 33-year-old Korean working in Iraq, by an Islamist group with links to al-Qaeda is the latest in a spate of incidents where Islamic militants have kidnapped and then decapitated their hostages.


While hostage-taking is itself not a new tactic, its use with modern communication technologies has given militants a new deadly weapon in their arsenal.


Kim was kidnapped two days after another al-Qaeda-linked group decapitated an American hostage, Paul Johnson, in Saudi Arabia. A month ago, Nick Berg, an American working in Iraq, was kidnapped and then beheaded.


Let your voice be heard that the citizens of the world will not accept this unholy shameful tactic.
