UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Thursday called for the "immediate and unconditional" release of all Iraqi and foreign hostages taken by Iraqi militants.
Annan "calls for their immediate, safe and unconditional release, and strongly reiterates his appeal to all sides to respect at all times the fundamental principles of international humanitarian law," his spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
Annan's comments came as an Internet statement by The Islamic Army in Iraq claimed it had killed a US hostage named Ronald Schulz, who was a contractor.
The Islamic Army said it killed Schulz because US President George W. Bush refused to meet its demands that all prisoners in Iraq be released.

".... Annan on Thursday called for the "immediate and unconditional" release of all Iraqi and foreign hostages taken by Iraqi militants."
Right......for whom the (oil for food) bell tolls!
I can hear islamics laughing from here.....
No, I take that back. The man is so ignorant he's becoming dangerous.
Or Kofi'll sic the Muppets on 'em.
These are not empty words. When he speaks, his words are backed up by the military might, the indomitable will, and the clear moral focus of the entire United Nations.
or what... you'll stamp your little hoof and hold yer breath??? please
And....if they aren't released.....YOU'LL QUIT???? BAAAWWWAAAAHHHHHHHH .......we wish.
If they get turned loose now because of Annan's demand we will know the whole thing was a set-up.
One of two things , either the Iraqui terrorists are LTAO or this whole thing was a set-up.
Is Kofi going to jump up and down and stamp his feet till he gets his way?
ooooooooooooooo.... I bet they're shaking in their boots now!
he is probably trying to get a cut of the ransom money....
lol... Ya, you tell em Tofu...
Didn't think I'd be finding you here! ARE YOU STALKING ME??? LoL! Did you see this?
And Kookie will see that all oil for food money will be returned to Iraq people immediately.
Annan, eh? Who cares.
I think that he should say "Release them, or else I will send twice as many to you. The more peaceniks you kill, the more I will send.
To the last peacenik!
