Video: Italian citizen kidnapped in Gaza

Salafist radicals in the Gaza Strip have kidnapped an Italian citizen and are threatening to kill him, a video posted late Thursday warned.

The video shows Vittorio Arrigoni bruised and blindfolded. Text scrolling across the screen threatens that he will die unless Hamas releases Salafist prisoners by 5 p.m. Friday.

Arrigoni was in Gaza working with the International Solidarity Movement, said Palestinian associates who confirmed that the video showed their colleague. The Italian national was last seen at a building popular among internationals in the port area of Gaza City, an ISM worker said.

2. what struck me is that they turned the table on Hamas
as Hamas is the one being 'extorted' to release Tawhid wal-Jihad prisoners, I wonder if they'll comply
