A video posted on the Internet claims to show the bodies of at least some of the seven foreign hostages believed killed by Islamist extremist group Ansaru following their abduction in Nigeria.

The grainy and silent video posted to YouTube and seen by AFP on Monday appears to show at least four of the seven victims who were abducted last month. The images match previous screenshots released at the weekend along with the claim that the hostages had been executed. The video is titled in Arabic "the death of the seven Christian hostages in Nigeria."
