Luke Somers

National Yemen Newspaper has regretfully watched the US photojournalist Luke Somers appeared on a YouTube video seeking the help of all to secure his life from al-Qaeda elements.

As we know Somers doesn’t deserve any kind of assassination or murdering. We are here repeating our calls to the Islamic elements to feel mercy about the future of a person who has chosen Yemen as a country to be in.

Somers appeared in his first video after his kidnapping, he said that he is Luke Somers and he is 32 years old, he was born in England but he carries the American citizenship because he left in America for most of his life.

Somers said that it is now over than one year since he was kidnapped in Sana’a, “basically I am looking for any help that can get me out of the situation, I am certain that my life is in danger. I ask, if anything can be done, please let it be done.

Al-Qaeda  has threatened to execute the kidnapped US photojournalist Luke Somers in 3 days if their demands not met.
