Terrorists Return Body of Murdered Civilian
The Iraqi militia that kidnapped five Britons in 2007 has said it will hand over the body of the last missing man, who it said was "killed in a clash". UK authorities had suspected Alan McMenemy, from Glasgow, was dead. The bodies of fellow security guards Jason Creswell, 39, of Glasgow, Jason Swindlehurst, 38, of Lancashire, and Alec MacLachlan, 30, of Carmarthenshire, were released in 2009. The men were kidnapped on 29 May 2007, from the ministry of finance in Baghdad where Mr Moore was working on a new IT system under the protection of the private security guards.... They were overpowered and taken hostage by a group of 50 to 100 armed men who entered the building that morning disguised in police and military uniforms. Mr Swindlehurst, Mr MacLachlan and Mr Creswell were later shot dead by their captors and their bodies taken to police stations in Baghdad in 2009.
