The Beheading Of Koda

A group led by Al Qaeda-ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi showed the beheading of the 24-year-old Japanese hostage Shosei Koda in Iraq while he was lying on top of a US flag in an Internet video.
Japanese officials confirmed on Sunday that the body and severed head of a man found in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad was that of Mr Koda.
The video showed the hostage, who was wearing a white T-shirt, kneeling with a US flag laid out behind him. Mr Koda's hands were tied behind his back and three masked men dressed all in black stood beneath the group's banner. After reading a statement, the men grabbed Mr Koda and put him on the flag before sawing off his head with a large knife and holding it aloft and placing it on top of the corpse.
