Video shows execution of 3 Russian diplomats by al-Qaeda barbarians

A video posted on the Internet shows the graphic killings of three Russian diplomats kidnapped in Iraq, and says an al-Qaeda umbrella group has killed four hostages.

The video, posted on an Islamic website, showed the beheading of one blindfolded man, the headless body of another in a pool of blood, and the shooting of a third man.

The Mujahedeen Shura Council, an umbrella organization linking seven insurgent groups including Al-Qaeda in Iraq, claimed responsibility. The four Russian embassy workers were abducted on June 3 after an attack on their car in Baghdad.
