Terrorists Issue 72 Hour Ultimatum to Aussies

Douglas Woods is to be murdered unless Australia removes all troops from Iraq in the next 72 hours. If you believe in some sort of higher power, please include Douglas Woods in your prayers. I'd start by praying that Mr. Wood's captors meet the justice they deserve at the end of an Australian soldier's bayonet....

Iraqi militants holding an Australian hostage have given his government 72 hours to start pulling its troops out of Iraq, the Arab satellite TV channel Al-Jazeera reported Friday.

The network did not say what the militants were threatening to do to Douglas Wood if their demands were not met.

Many hostages have been killed by militants after their governments refused to withdraw from Iraq, however.

Al-Jazeera also aired new footage of Wood, 63, showing rifles pointed at his shaved head.
