Two More Tragedies...

As I feared when the beheadings began this week, an Islamist group in Iraq is claiming that it has killed Simona Torretta and Simona Pari (though it is yet to be confirmed). The Italian women, who volunteered for the aid group 'Un Ponte Per Baghdad' (A Bridge for Baghdad), were kidnapped on September 7 in a similar manner as the contractors.

For more on the matter, there's an excellent article on Common Dreams.
