WATCH: New al-Qaeda Video ‘The Issue of Our Captives’

In a new video purportedly released by al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, AQIM sets the conditions for the release of captive Swiss citizen Beatrice Stockly.

According to The Guardian, Stockly, who was first taken hostage by jihadists in Mali in 2012 and was released ten days later, was again been abducted from her home in Timbuktu on January 8. Stockly has been accused by Islamists as proselytizing for Christianity.

The video begins with an Islamist chant and then cuts to a screen where an Islamist preacher states it is the right of Islamists to hold captives ransom.

After a brief montage of the history of captives in the North African region, a list of demands for the release of Stockly is delivered in English by a masked man to the French and Swiss governments. Demands include:

  • Release of all al-Qaeda captives in Mali
  • The release of an apprehended jihadist
  • The footage then cuts to a hijab clad Stockly.

    AQIM is not ISIS. In fact, ISIS is at war with AQIM and all of al-Qaeda.
