UK hostages 'likely to be dead'
Two more of the British hostages held in Iraq are now thought "very likely" to be dead, the BBC has learned.
Security guards Alan McMenemy, from Glasgow, and Alec Maclachlan, from south Wales, were kidnapped in 2007 along with three other Britons.
The bodies of two of the other men were found last month with gunshot wounds.
The condition of the fifth man, Peter Moore, is not known. The Foreign Office says all efforts are being made to secure the hostages' release.
These where civilians and not combat soldiers, a very cowardly thing to do and it shows how calous and barbaric these Muslim fanatic terrorist really are. They call this a holy action I expect, they are just butchers and thugs low life of the lowest grade. How brave these morans must think they are.
