Two Western Hostages Murdered by al Qaeda

And yet, some people call them 'freedom fighters':

One British and one Italian hostage held in Nigeria by kidnappers who claimed links to al-Qaida have been killed during a joint rescue operation, the U.K. prime minister said Thursday.

Chris McManus and Franco Lamolinara, who had been working on a bank construction project in the country's restive north, were captured in May. It appeared that both hostages "were murdered by their captors before they could be rescued" by Nigerian and British forces, Prime Minister David Cameron said.

Point this story out the next time someone rolls out the 'one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter' argument.
