It's a story we have been following closely in the Valley; the Iraq kidnapping of Tom Fox, from Clear Brook. Now there is word that the kidnappers are threatening to kill him.

Kidnappers in Iraq are threatening to kill the four Christian peace activists, unless all prisoners in US and Iraqi detention centers are released. Clear Brook resident and Eastern Mennonite University graduate student Tom Fox is among those hostages. The threat was made on a videotape aired by Arab TV. The kidnappers give both the US and Iraqi governments until Thursday of next week to meet their demands.

According to Al-Jazeera, the tape showed two Canadian hostages eating from plates. In another clip, American and British hostages are shown talking to the camera, but there was no audio.
