Begin original post:


CAIRO, Egypt - Four masked, black-clad men who said they belong to a group that has claimed responsibility for kidnappings and killings in Iraq (news - web sites) beheaded a man identified only as a Bulgarian in a video posted on the Internet Monday....The militants in the video said they were from the Tawhid and Jihad group, which had claimed to have kidnapped two Bulgarian truck drivers June 29 and demanded Iraqi detainees be released in exchange for their lives.

The beheaded body of one of the drivers, Georgi Lazov, was found in the Tigris River in Iraq in mid-July and a tape was released showing his death. An announcement late last month of the discovery of a second decapitated body in an orange jumpsuit and a head in a bag near the Tigris River had prompted fears that Ivaylo Kepov too had been killed, but there was no video of his slaying.

Updates as they happen.

I previously posted about this here.

UPDATE I: The problem with blogging is you often write something before thinking too hard. This is NEW video. What I had before was not VIDEO, only still images from the video. Zarquawi's group had posted a message saying they would release the video in the future, along with some vidcaps they posted the day of the announcement. This is the video they announced.

UPDATE II: In the Bullpen has graciously offered to host the video in .zip format.

UPDATE III: Just to reiterate--this is new VIDEO, not a new beheading. The video shows either Georgi Lazov or Ivaylo Kepov who were both murdered sometime around July 13 or 14. See this post for a list of the 14 hostages murdered since 9/11.

UPDATE IV: Wizbang also has the video--but server is slow.

UPDATE V: Chris Short has also graciously offered to host the video (very fast), and has a good blog roundup. The version I sent him is the Real Video Version, and therefore does not need to be unzipped when downloaded. Scroll to bottom of post to get video.

Others on the trail: Jeff Quinton, James Joyner, In the Bullpen, Command Post, On the Third Hand, Wizbang

1 I can host it. I've got more than enough.

2 Glad my info was useful and glad that somebody will host it although I hate zip files. The People of the United States of America must see what these barbarians do and why it is so important to show and fight against terrorism of any kind!! Now if I could actually figure out how to do a blog, I'd host everything and more just so WE SHOULD NEVER FORGET!!! 9/11/01

5 thats the most horrible thing that living species can do, those people are not Human those are the devel
himself, and its not fair even to say that those
are living species they are DEAD species because they have no feelings or mercy or anything that can be related to a living thing what ever, those
creatures must be punished for what they've done,
in the name of Islam those days crimes are commited, the world must be cleaned from those destructive beings, I dont call them humans because they are not, Only then Iraq can be a peacful place and his people can live in peace, but that wont be easy , the mentality of the people must be changed, but it wont be easy , decates of brutality under the Saddam regime, the people have seen nothing from civilization ,no satilite nothing, decates living blindly, they dont know what is democracy, they have only seen saddam on TV and nothing else, no newspaper,no magazines only those which are selected by the dictator regime,they have only lived with brutality and nothing else, and many grew up with brutality
..and thats why we see so much brutality in Iraq , so the door was widly open for those terrorests who also came from abroad and worked together with those who use to do auful things against the Iraqis under the Saddam regime , and also those criminals who were protected by the regime just because they were Baath party members
plus the terruble economic facter which led many to the road of criminality because of need of money..i just whish that the way of democracy will succeed and those Garbage be Destroyed and vanished for EVER..I m an Iraqi citizen living in Germany.

7 I have read all the comments on your site, and what troubles me more than anything else is the appalling standard of spelling in America. Perhaps the only word your countrymen are able to spell correctly is WAR - a short one, at least.

8 I'm deeply sorry and I feel what was being done to these hostages is truly inhumane. I understand there must be like millions of muslim haters right now but I am a muslim myself and I can honestly say that what they are doing and how they are handling the situation is greatly against our religion and ALLAH did not not summond them to do these horrific things. My plea to the world is that do not condemn us muslim cause we are not like that and that is not our teaching, condemn the people who do it cause obviously they are not from our religion for they dare to do the kind of things which is against the religion. If we ever have the intention to harm anybody be it the reason as revenge we are no different from the people who do it so lets not be label as a hipocrite and resent their actions but our heart is out there to seek revenge and do exactly what they did instead let the law deal with them cause with that they will ahve a slow and painful death.
