AL QAEDA RELEASES NEW VIDEO OF AMERICAN HOSTAGE
Al Qaeda has released a new video of an American hostage delivering a desperate plea to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, asking him to intervene on his behalf,ABC News first reported.
“Message from the Prisoner Warren Weinstein To the Zionist Netanyahu,” the caption in the video reads.
Warren Weinstein, 71, a former Peace Corps and USAID official, was kidnapped from his home in an upper-class neighborhood in Lahore, Pakistan in August 2011 after a number of armed men tricked his security guard into letting them onto his property. Officials believe Weinstein is being held in the tribal regions along Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan.
