      Austrian Hostage in Yemen Makes Desperate Video Plea


      An Austrian man kidnapped in Yemen late last year with a Finnish couple said in a video posted on the Internet that his captors would kill him in a week if their demands were not met, Austrian media reported Saturday.

      The video, which was posted on YouTube on February 21, was confirmed as authentic by the authorities of Finland and Austria, the Austrian APA agency said.
