“The Swords of Truth” Tuesday released a video of four Western hostages kidnapped in Baghdad Saturday, Nov. 26

Two Canadians, a Briton and a presumed American were presented as “spies of the occupying forces.” The only hostage identified is the Briton Norman Kember.
debkafile adds: The group is a front for Abu Musab al Zarqawi’s network. DEBKA-Net-Weekly earlier reported his relocation to Baghdad in October. Our sources revealed he determined to go back to abducting and killing foreigners as one of his tactics for derailing Iraq’s Dec. 15 general election.
Earlier Tuesday, a videotape showing the abducted German woman archeologist and her driver was handed to the German state TV office in Baghdad.
