      Collaborators in the sights of the resistance

      BAGHDAD,—The death of two Pakistani prisoners and the
      kidnapping of a Somali truck driver from a Kuwaiti firm
      today confirmed the increasing lack of security for those
      collaborating with the occupying forces in Iraq, Prensa
      Latina reports.

      By yesterday, what the media is now calling the "kidnapping
      crisis" had produced a total of 70 foreigners kidnapped
      since April, when it became a pressure tactic of the
      resistance for demanding the withdrawal of the invading
      forces and their collaborators.

      A common feature of these actions is the assurance of the
      physical integrity of kidnap victims in exchange for the
      exit from the country of their employers, who are
      participating in the so-called economic reconstruction led
      by the United States.

      Al Jazeera television reported the capture of the Somali
      and the death of the other two, who had been in the power
      of their kidnappers for one week.

      In other events, resistance forces killed four soldiers of
      the occupation forces, three of them from the United
      States. Meanwhile, the number deaths from the car-bomb
      attack outside a police station in Baquba, north of
      Baghdad, has risen to 70.
