Italian Hostage Salvatore Santoro Murdered by Terrorists in Iraq

It appears that Salvatore Santoro was only captured very recently. Reports about the Italian man going missing and reports of his death came almost simultaneously. Zaman reports that Mr. Santoro was working for a British non-governmental organization. Xinhua reports that Mr. Santoro was 52 and from the Campania region near Naples. The Islamic Movement of Iraqi Mujahidin is new to me, but could simply be another translation of The Islamic Army in Iraq which operates in Ramadi, where Mr. Santoro was taken captive.
