Iraqi national guardsmen are targetted again (file photo)
28 October 2004 -- An Iraqi extremist group says its members have executed 11 Iraqi national guardsmen.
The Ansar Al-Sunnah Army said on its website that it beheaded one and shot 10 others after capturing them on the highway between Baghdad and Al-Hillah. The website had a video link showing the soldiers reading their own names and then showed them being executed.
The group said in a statement that it was avenging the deaths of Iraqis in Al-Fallujah, Al-Samarra, Al-Ramadi, and elsewhere.
Another group in Iraq today said it has kidnapped a Polish woman in Iraq and demanded Poland withdraw its forces. The Polish government said the abducted woman is Polish with an Iraqi husband.
