This will not get the attention it media it deserves.  What if the highest ranking Imam in Iraq were killed?

The kidnappers are claiming he died of natural causes and was already ill.  Oh, I guess that means they’re off the hook…not.

I wonder how much being kidnapped by Islamic thugs would contribute to the deterioration of his health?  It’s murder, whatever way you want to look at it.

The kidnappers had telephoned to inform the Baghdad prelate that Rahho, who was in poor health, had died and that they had buried him, the Italian Roman Catholic Church’s SIR news agency reported, quoting the auxiliary archbishop of Baghdad, Shlemon Warduni.

“The kidnappers had told us already (Wednesday) that Monsignor Rahho was very ill, and yesterday afternoon they told us that he died. This morning, they telephoned us to say they had buried him,” Warduni said, adding that the kidnappers indicated the location of the body.

“We still don’t know whether he died from his poor health or was killed,” Warduni said. “The kidnappers only told us that he was dead.”

The archbishop is the highest-ranking Christian cleric to have died while being held by kidnappers in Iraq.
