Kidnappers threaten to kill peace activists

Al-Jazeera television aired a new videotape Friday in which kidnappers of four Christian peace activists threatened to kill their hostages unless all prisoners in U.S. and Iraqi detention centers are released.

The kidnappers gave the two governments until Thursday Dec. 8 to meet their demands, according to Al-Jazeera quoting a statement delivered with the tape.

The tape showed what the television station said were two Canadian hostages. An American and a Briton are also being held. The Canadians were shown eating from plates of what appeared to be Arabic sweets.

In a second clip, the Briton and American hostages were shown to talking to the camera but no audio was transmitted, AP reports.
