Kirkuk, Iraq — The body of an Iraqi Christian, kidnapped three days ago, was found in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, police sources said Monday.

Police discovered the body of Ashur Yacoub with signs of torture.

Yacoub, a Christian in his 30s, was kidnapped by gunmen days ago, who demanded his relatives to pay 100,000 dollars as ransom to release him.

‘But when they failed to pay the ransom, he was killed by his abductors,’ a security source told the Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Eight men charged with piracy in the hijacking of a yacht that left four Americans dead will enter plea agreements, according to court documents.

The men are among 15 people from Somalia and Yemen who had previously pleaded not guilty to piracy, kidnapping and firearms charges in the February hijacking of the yacht Quest in the Gulf of Aden.

Prosecutors contend the men boarded the boat in an effort to hold its passengers for ransom.

The owners of the Quest, Jean and Scott Adam of Marina del Rey, Calif., along with friends Bob Riggle and Phyllis Macay of Seattle, were shot to death several days after they were taken hostage several hundred miles south of Oman.

The U.S. Navy was using unmanned airplanes and four warships to track the captured yacht and negotiations were under way when the pirates fired a rocket-propelled grenade, authorities say.

Special forces boarded the vessel and found the Americans had been shot, according to the military.

Pirates have blamed the deaths of the American hostages on the Navy, saying the pirates felt under attack.
