Two British Hostages Held in Iraq Likely Dead
《被伊拉克劫持两名英国人质可能已死亡》
.
Written by Tom Rivers
记者:汤姆瑞勃
.
Families of two of the three remaining British hostages held in Iraq for two years are deeply troubled to hear the men are likely dead. The news was broken to them last week by British officials.
英国仍有三名人质被伊拉克劫持了两年之久。其中两人的家人在听说他们可能已经死亡之后非常担忧。上周英国官员通知了他们这个消息。
.
The loved ones of the British hostages are going through anguish and torment.
这些英国人质的家人正在经历极大的痛苦和烦恼。
.
While Foreign Office officials will not confirm or deny the widespread media reports here that two Britons employed as private security guards in Iraq have died in captivity, various accounts point to the likelihood that Alan McMenemy and Alec MacLachlan are probably dead.
媒体广泛报道,两名在伊拉克被雇佣为私人安保的英国人被劫持,不同的报告都表明,Alan McMenemy 和Alec MacLachlan可能已经死亡。而外交办公室官员对这些报告不置可否。
.
Given the sensitive nature of the situation, details are not being made public, but as Business Secretary Peter Mandelson says the outlook does not look good.
由于形势本身的敏感性,目前细节信息还没有公布,但是商务大臣曼德尔森称形势似乎不太好。
.
"I do not want to disclose publicly the information we are getting, but we are intensively engaged through a whole variety of different channels, but I do not disguise the fact that we are extremely concerned for the safety of the hostages," said Peter Mandelson. "And while we will continue to do everything we can, we cannot be sure what the future will hold, but we are doing our absolute level best."
“我不想公开披露我们得到的信息,但是我们通过各种渠道进行了深入的调查,我不会掩饰事实,我们对人质的安全状况确实非常担忧。”曼德尔森说。但是在我们继续尽一切努力的同时,我们不能确定将来会怎样。但是我们绝对是在尽最大努力。
.
The two men were in a group of five Britons kidnapped from the Finance Ministry building in Baghdad in May 2007 by around 40 men disguised as Iraqi policemen.
2007年5月,巴格达财政部大楼内五名英国人被40多名化装成伊拉克警察的男子绑架,Alan McMenemy 和Alec MacLachlan就在其中。
.
Their captors are from a shadowy Shi'ite group known as the Islamic Shia Resistance in Iraq. The group has demanded the release of nine of its members held in prison.
劫持者是黑暗的什叶派武装组织。该组织要求释放在狱中关押的九名成员。
.
Since their abduction, the British hostages have appeared occasionally in videos, but last month the bodies of two other security contractors in the group were released.
自他们被绑架以来,英国人质市场出现在视频中,但是上月,两名人质的尸体被移交。
.
If this latest claim that the two remaining guards are also dead, that would leave only the plight of the man they were protecting unknown. He is 36-year-old Peter Moore, a computer instructor working for the U.S. management consultancy Bearingpoint in Iraq.
如果最近所说的剩余的两人也已经死亡,那么他们努力保护的最后一人的处境也不得而知。最后一人名叫Peter Moore,今年36岁,是一名电脑讲师,在驻伊拉克美国管理顾问部门Bearingpoint工作。
