An Iraqi insurgent group has threatened to kill a German woman and her son, said to have been kidnapped in Iraq, unless Germany withdrew its troops from Afghanistan within 10 days, pan-Arab television stations reported on Saturday.
The Dubai-based Al-Arabiya and the Qatar based Al-Jazeera networks aired the video from a previously unknown insurgent group called the "Arrows of Righteousness," showing the abducted woman and her son.
In the footage, the woman is identified as Hannelore Marianne Krause. She wears a blue scarf over her head and is shown seated, next to her son to her right, according to the stations' reports.
