Jaish Ansar al-Sunnah (formerly the Arab contingent of Ansar al-Islam, which is part of Zarqawi's al-Tawhid, which is part of al-Qaeda) has just beheaded Wassef Hassoun. It's the same brutal stuff as when they killed Paul Johnson or Nick Berg or any of the other people who have been killed by these scum, but from what I gather he met his end well. The communique we're seeing here is from an Abu Abdullah al-Hassan bin Mahmoud and it says that they killed him because after releasing the Turkish and Pakistani hostages they wanted us to know that they weren't going to spare fellow Muslims who side with the US.
