DUBAI - A Saudi diplomat held hostage in Yemen since March appealed to King Abdullah to meet al-Qaida's demands to free detained women to ensure his release, according to a video recording posted online late on Wednesday.

It was at least the third video statement by Abdullah al-Khalidi since militants seized the Saudi vice consul in the southern Yemeni port city of Aden.

The United States and its Gulf Arab allies have been worried by the reach of al-Qaida and its allies in Yemen.
