    There are no words that can properly convey the horror and anguish that this man, and indeed the other hostages that have so far been brutally murdered at the hands of people who claim to act in the name of their god, must have gone through.

    What god could possibly condone these actions? Even the people that the terrorists claim to represent have condemned what they have done.

    We can only hope that he's free from the pain and desperation of the last few weeks and that eventually the savages that did this will suffer the justice they deserve.

    Animals only kill what they have to to survive, Kenneth Bigley's killers are not even fit to be classed as animals.

    This is a great shame, especially as Mr Bigley was part of the effort to rebuild Iraq. These events must strengthen our resolve to do the right thing and maybe the leaders of our nations might learn a bit more about considered action.

    I agree. The sad thing is that within this is the Kenneth Bigley was not a soldier or a man of war, but a man who loved the region and who was trying to help the people of Iraq.

    What angered me, though, were the mindless idiots at the England game who interupted the minutes silence. That should have been a mark of respect for a man who was needlessley murdered trying to help rebuild a broken nation. The moment didn't deserve that, and those scum who have no sense of dignity should be named and shamed by their 'friends'.

    Quite, Crawford. To call his killers vile scum is an insult to vile scum.... may he rest in peace because he certainly wasn't allowed to spend the last few weeks of his life in peace.

    Our thoughts will surely be with his family at this time, and it must be even worse with things having dragged on for so long.

    As has already been said, he was there because he wanted to help in the rebuilding process, and I only hope people can stay focussed enough to realise that this was the action of one rogue group of extremists - and incidentally one of those groups strongly opposed by Saddam's regime - and not the work of the Iraqi people as a whole, or the Moslem faith.
