A new videotape of a high-ranking aid worker kidnapped in Iraq sets some deadlines and is reportedly too graphic for one TV station to broadcast.
The video of relief worker Margaret Hassan reportedly shows her again pleading for her life. Ireland's premier says it warns of dangerous and serious deadlines, but he isn't giving any details about possible demands or timelines.
This is the fourth tape of Hassan released since she was kidnapped Oct. 19.
The Al-Jazeera Arab news channel says it has a copy of the latest tape but that it's too graphic to air.
The footage reportedly shows Hassan pleading for her life when she suddenly faints. Britain's Press Agency says a bucket of water is then thrown onto the Irish-born woman and she is seen lying wet and helpless on the ground. She later gets up and cries. Ireland's premier calls it "distressing."
