Video Appeal from Kidnapped Swede in Iraq

The Swedish and international media are giving wide attention to a video of a Swedish citizen kidnapped in Iraq and his appeals to the Swedish king and the pope to convince the Americans to pull their troops out of Iraq.

The Iraqi-born man returned there after the fall of the regime to head the Christian Democratic Party. His wife and adult children are in Sweden and say they can not raise the huge ransom demanded by the kidnappers.
