2. Yes, this is the 2nd bridge in 2 days.

Iraq Qaeda-led group says holding 14 officers-Web

DUBAI, June 11 (Reuters) - An Iraqi al Qaeda-led group
said on Monday it was holding 14 Iraqi army and police
personnel and threatened to kill them in days unless
the government met its demands.

"The Islamic State in Iraq gives the government of
(Prime Minister Nouri) al-Maliki 72 hours to respond to
its demands otherwise God's ruling will be implemented
against them," the group said in a statement posted on
the Internet.

The group, which has killed several hostages in the past,
demanded the release of all Sunni Muslims held by the
Interior Ministry. It also wants the government to hand
over officers involved in the alleged rape of a Sunni
Muslim woman.
