  • Anyone hear about this

    May 17, 2010: Saudi troops crossed the border and rescued two Germans (girls aged 3 and 5) who had been kidnapped eleven months ago by Yemeni tribesmen, along with five other foreigners. Three of the captives (two German and one South Korean women) were killed quickly, and the infant brother of the two girls, and two other adult captives are also believed dead. The foreigners were taken prisoner in an attempt to get the government to free tribe members held in prison. The government won't free prisoners under these conditions, as it just encourages more kidnappings. The Saudis carried out the rescue here, it is believed, because Saudi forces were closer, and there would be less retaliation against the Yemeni government for the operation.

    Anyone hear about this one. When ya start taking 3 and 5 year olds hostage you are lower than the low.

    just saw this blurb down the page here

    First I have heard of this. Good for the Saudis. I hope they left lots of bad guys turned good. The only good terrorist is a dead terrorist.
