A video of five British citizens kidnapped in Iraq and held since May has been aired on Al Arabiya television today.
The video calls for British forces to withdraw from the country or the kidnappers would kill one of their five hostages.
The video showed a statement in which the group threatened that "this hostage will be killed as a first warning, which would be followed with details that you would not wish to know".
