GAZA - Security officials found the body of an Italian man who had been abducted in the Gaza Strip in an abandoned house overnight Thursday, a Hamas security official said.
Two men were arrested and others were being sought.
In a You Tube clip the group posted online earlier Thursday, a Jihadist Salafi group in Gaza aligned with al Qaida had threatened to execute Italian rights activist Vittorio Arigoni by 17:00 local time (1400 GMT) unless their leader Hesham al-Sa'eedni, whom it detained last month, was freed.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the kidnapping and called for Arigoni's "immediate release without conditions," in a statement overnight Thursday.
"The move does not serve the justification of the Palestinian nation, but harms it," Abbas added.
"If our demands are not met within 30 hours the captive will be executed when the period is over," a text on the video clip said.

I hope he is able to get a date with Rachel Corrie (St. Pancake) in hell.
Ah, yes; the so-called religion of peace.

Islam is a Religion of Peace and Jihad is a personal inner struggle.
This is just more propaganda from the Zionist entity...</sarcasm>
Guess his killers weren't real impressed with either his pacifism or his blog.
Ah the fruits of the ROP.
Vittorio Arigoni, pro-Pal activist, found dead in Gaza in abandoned house
When do you think Israel will be blamed?
I was just about to say that.
The guy looks like a guerrilla or may a gorilla.
So the Italian government apparently couldn’t pay a ransom to the enemy quickly enough in that case.
Hey, let’s change the blame game a little. Let’s blame this killing on the Gaza Amish. You know them - they travel in buggies drawn by camels. Their drive-by shootings with popcorn are notorious up and down the Gaza Strip, as well as their war-cry, “English, English, English”.
“When do you think Israel will be blamed?”
Even in death, an idiot can still be useful, sometimes more so. Look st the mileage they’ve gotten out of Saint Rachel de Jemima.
Well, you know they say that smoking is bad for your health...
