Italians reject hostages plea

(Filed: 28/04/2004)

Italy's political leaders refused yesterday to bow to Iraqi kidnappers' threats to kill three Italian hostages unless there are mass protests against their country's military involvement in the country. But the men's relatives urged people to turn out at rallies next week.

The men, captured outside Baghdad, were working for a private American security firm. A fourth Italian captive was killed after the kidnappers demanded the withdrawal of Italian troops from Iraq.
