The kidnappings and ritual executions in Iraq must in the end be counterprodudtive for the cause of the kidnappers. Nothing can be gained by the abduction of Margaret Hassan.
Today's news (19 October 2004) of the abduction of Margaret Hassan, who has worked tirelessly in Iraq for 30 years to benefit the poor and disadvantaged, must leave all of us in a state of shock.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- The Care International charity says its chief of operations in Iraq has been kidnapped in Baghdad.
Care International country director Margaret Hassan, who has joint British-Iraqi citizenship, was seized Tuesday morning, the charity's London-based spokeswoman Kate Bulbulian told CNN.
Al Jazeera, the Arabic-language TV network, aired a video of Hassan, who was shown sitting in a room. She was talking and appeared anxious.
It showed close-ups of Hassan's identification cards.
