Both will be released unharmed and ofcourse ransom will be given but denied by the negotiators.

Good catch. That will pay nicely, god willing.

A couple of million dollars of Japanese taxpayer money, discretely under the table... nice encouragement for the next job.

Muslims are great people. They'd never hurt anyone you pay millions of dollars for. Even they are addicted to the US currency and economy.

Bushlover. What has islam to do with it? I had a family member kidnapped for ransom in a christian country. Shall I assume all christians are money grubbing criminals?

Ok.

Most kidnappings of foreigners in Yemen are by disgruntled tribesmen hoping to wangle concessions from the government, including the release of jailed relatives, but they usually treat their hostages well and release them unharmed, according to the Associated Press.

Gee, that sounds better than many of the hotels I have stayed in. Of course the "usually" part sorta bothers me and probably the innocent man who was kidnapped. I doubt he is happy with his present lodgings.

But he should be okay usually.

Thanks AP!

But he should be okay usually.

He will only be OK if/when these sand-dwelling sub-humans receive their million(s) in U.S. greenbacks. Good luck to the poor Japanese engineer and his driver.

Let's hope that their concessions don't include money, which they will use to buy more weapons. In Colombia and other countries, kidnaping businesses are run out of seemingly reputable offices, and the revenue stream is pretty solid. Heck, they may even have business cards.

@Taj

It has everything to do with it. Go live among them and see how much lack of respect they have for everything in general. I do, and so do many of my friends and even my reserved friends can't deny how undesirable of a people they are. Luckily, Islamic apologists like you are a minority and are in decline as the world is getting sick of political correctness, and specifically the threat of Islam to our Western world and how they are manipulating our customs, laws and systems.

Also, religion sucks and I hate religion in general although I strongly believe in our Lord Jehovah and the sacrifice Jesus committed for us. I do have to say that I'm surprised at the hate for Christianity by some who visit Japantoday.

@Yelnats

To be fair, a person's religious affiliation has nothing to do with how greedy said person is. We live in a materialistic world driven totally by the dollar and the vast majority of people are victim to it, regardless of race and religion.
