British Journalist Kidnapped

James Brandon, 23, a British journalist from the Sunday Telegraph was kidnapped from a Basra Hotel by about 20 or 30 masked gunmen.

In a video the kidnappers, most likely Shiites Muslims declared;

"We are the sons of the Iraqi people," said the captor wearing a black ski mask. "We demand the withdrawal of the occupation forces from the holy city of Najaf in 24 hours, otherwise we will kill this British hostage," he said, patting Brandon on the shoulder.

There really isn't too much to say about this but pray.
