Executions → Beheading → Nick Berg beheading (05/07/2004)
Nicholas Berg was an American businessman seeking telecommunications work in Iraq after the US invasion of Iraq. He was abducted and later beheaded in May 2004 by Iraqi militants. The CIA claimed that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi personally beheaded Berg.
The decapitation, the first of a series of such killings of foreign hostages in Iraq, received worldwide attention because it was videotaped, and the footage was subsequently released on the Internet, reportedly from London to a Malaysian hosted homepage by the Islamic organization al-Ansars.
