An al-Qaida-linked Sunni group said that it kidnapped 18 government workers and soldiers in retaliation for the alleged rape of a Sunni woman by members of the Shiite-dominated police force.
This comes hours after the news from Al-Qaeda that they have 2000 suicide bombers willing and ready to go at any time and would attack important places in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Photos of the 18 kidnapped men were released today, out of which 7 of them were wearing Iraqi army uniform. The men were all blindfolded with their hands tied behing their backs.
"This blessed operation is a response to crimes carried out by those infidels in their fight against the Sunnis," the statement said.
"The latest of the crimes committed by these traitors was to rape our sister in religion."
Al-Qaeda continues to make their presence felt even though the Bush administration says they've eliminated a very strong part of it. The Afghanistan officials are accusing Pakistan for sheltering and funding Al-Qaeda and also putting their own military men to the cause of Al-Qaeda. The Bush administration continues to hawk eye the afghan-pakistan border and is hopefull they will catch someone who can give them insights into where in Pakistan Al-Qaeda forces are being trained.
Brig. General Abdul-Karim Khalaf, an Interior Ministry spokesman, said the 14 bodies out of the 18 kidnapped were found today in the Diyala province north-east of Baghdad.
He said Iraqi authorities would "chase those who assassinated these unarmed people".
