According to Yahoo news, extremist Islamist terror group, Ansaru, Monday, posted a video of the bodies of the seven foreign hostages it had been holding since February on the Internet. The silent video dated March 6, shows a gunman standing next to a pile of bodies, then a series of close-ups of their faces lit up by a torch. It reportedly carries the Arabic title “The killing of the seven Christian hostages in Nigeria” although the religion of the captives was not clear. A caption underneath says in Arabic and in English: “In the name of Allah Most Beneficent Most Merciful”. The seven victims which included British, Lebanese, Italian and Greek nationalities were construction workers with Setraco and were seized by the terror group in Bauchi, northern Nigeria.
