02. 09. 2004 DOHA ( AFP ) - Arabic-language satellite television Al-Jazeera said that three Turkish hostages held by an Islamist group in Iraq had been killed, saying it had received a video of the execution.

Police and medical officers in Iraq told AFP that three Turkish drivers were found shot dead on the roadside outside the rebel den of Samarra north of Baghdad, apparently the hostages.

In Ankara, a Turkish official said the Al-Jazeera report about the execution "seems credible."

Al-Jazeera said the kidnappers, members of a group linked to alleged Al-Qaeda operative Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, had threatened in a statement to kill foreigners in Iraq and warned: "The time for mercy is over."

News of the execution came after an overnight US air strike on a suspected Zarqawi hideout in the Iraqi rebel stronghold of Fallujah which killed 20 people.
