Paul Johnson story and other updates

Internet traffic again surges as Reuters reports today that Paul Johnson's head has been discovered in a refrigerator during a raid on a militant hideout. Also, it is being widely reported that six foreign workers have been taken hostage, and militants threaten to execute "one every 72 hours" if their demands are not met. (I suppose we can also expect releases of additional horror films from Osama bin Laden studios, as I remark lightly in one of my popular spoofs, linked below.)

The rest of this story, and any updates, together with many links to the many related stories on this and other blogs (and many hours of reader associated comments) are posted here (link).
