Kidnappers threaten abducted American

QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) -- The kidnappers of an American U.N. workers seized in Pakistan have threatened to kill him within 72 hours unless more than 100 prisoners are released.

The threat was contained in a letter delivered with a grainy video of the hostage, John Solecki, to a Pakistani news agency on Friday.

Solecki appears blindfolded in the short clip and appeals to the world body to act quickly to secure his release.
