Chaldean Christian, Ashur Issa Yaqub, kidnapped...

Chaldean Christian, Ashur Issa Yaqub, kidnapped by Iraqi insurgents found dead, nearly beheaded

A Christian construction worker kidnapped by Iraqi insurgents over the weekend has been killed, police said Monday.

Ashur Issa Yaqub, a Chaldean Christian, was snatched on Saturday in the northern city of Kirkuk, authorities said.

The 29-year-old man's body was found early Monday with his head "almost completely cut off," said Kirkuk provincial police chief Major General Jamal Taher Bakr.

Provincial health chief Sadiq Omar Rasul confirmed the details, and added that the body "carried traces of torture and the bites of dogs."

His legs and arms were also tied together, according to reports.

The kidnappers demanded $100,000 for Yaqub, who had a wife and three children.

More than 500,000 Chaldean Christians live in Iraq. The group is an independent Catholic Church with its own traditions, but recognizes the Pope's authority in Rome.
