12 Nepalese Murdered by the Army of Ansar al-Sunna
By Chris Short - 31 Aug 2004
Reuters: "An Iraqi militant group said it had killed 12 Nepali hostages and showed pictures on an Islamist Web site on Tuesday of one of them being beheaded.
'We have carried out the sentence of God against 12 Nepalis who came from their country to fight the Muslims and to serve the Jews and the Christians...believing in Buddhah as their God,' said the statement by the military committee of the Army of Ansar al-Sunna.
The group also posted a series of photographs showing the killing of the hostages as well as a video.
The recording showed two masked men, one in camouflage, holding down a hostage. One of the men then used a knife to behead the hostage and then hold his head aloft.
The video then showed a group of hostages lying face-down in a dirt pitch being gunned down by a man using an automatic rifle. It then showed bodies splattered with blood and with bullet wounds in the head and back.
'Our brothers, do not feel any mercy or pity for these nasty and spiteful people,' the statement said.
'They have left their homes and their countries and crossed thousands of kilometers to work for the American Crusader forces and to support their war against Islam and the mujahideen.'
The Nepalis were taken hostage earlier this month as they entered Iraq to work as cooks and cleaners for a Jordanian company. The Ansar al-Sunna said it had kidnapped them because they were cooperating with U.S. troops in Iraq.
'America has exploited and used all it has to fight Islam and its people under what it calls the war on terrorism, which is a spiteful Crusader war against Muslims,' the statement said.
'This is why, and in order to thwart the enemies of God, we have carried out this sentence (punishment),' it added."
The Army of Ansar al-Sunna has no information from what I can tell about the subject. However, I will attempt to find out more information and post it here.
UPDATE#1: Video is available.

IT AMAZES ME THAT THESE SO CALLED EXECUTIONERS CAN CALL THEM SELVES MEN. THEY ARE COWARDS . THEY HIDE BEHIND MASKS. TO COWARDLY TO SHOW THERE FACES. THESE COWARDS WILL MAKE THE WORLD HATE ALL ISLAM. I DON'T AGREE WITH ALOT THAT MY GOVERMENT DOES BUT ATLEAST WE ARE NOT SUCH COWARDS THAT WE TAKE UNARMED MEN JUST TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING FOR THERE FAMILYS. THESE MASKED COWARDS ARE NOT MAN ENOUGH TO FACE A REAL MAN. A REAL SOLIDER WOULD NOT HIDE BEHIND A WOMANS BARCA. IF I DON'T SPELL IT RIGHT IT DOES NOT MATTER THEY KNOW WHAT I MEAN. TO TAKE A PERSONS LIFE IN THE WAY THEY DO IS THE LOWEST FORM OF COWARD. FACE TO FACE YOU CAN'T DO BECAUSE THAT WOULD TAKE A REAL MAN. AND IF YOUR GOD JUSTIFIES KILLING A MAN IN SUCH A COWARDLY WAY THEN I SPIT ON YOUR GOD.
