Execution video.

A video purporting to show the beheading of a Turkish driver kidnapped in Iraq last month surfaced yesterday on the Web site of an al Qaidalinked militant group.

On the video, the victim identifies himself as Durmus Kumdereli. Speaking in Turkish, he says he was transporting goods to an American military base in Mosul. Arabic subtitles accompanied his words.

Afterward, a black screen with a title reading 'the execution' appears, followed by warnings from masked, armed militants to foreign drivers and grisly footage of the beheading.
