Foreign Hostages Killed in Yemen

Sad news from Yemen today: Nine missing foreigners, who were kidnapped during a picnic last week, have all turned up dead, the Associated Press reports. Shepherds found three mutilated women's bodies early on Monday. The remaining six bodies were found later. The dead include a German doctor, his wife and their three children, a Briton and his South Korean wife, and two other German nationals, all of whom worked at a hospital in Yemen's Saada region. A tribal leader in the area blamed Al-Qaeda for the killings.
