UPDATE: BREAKING: 5:30 a.m. est. Both Fox News Journalists Steve Centanni and Olaf Wigg are safe and have been RELEASED!!! Oh THANK GOD!!! They are both in a hotel in Gaza City at this moment.

BREAKING NOW: It is 3:40 a.m. est time, early Sunday morning, Aug 27th.... A New Video Tape is being release by the Holy Jihad Brigades, the captors of Fox News Journalists, not yet aired in its entirety on Fox News. The partial video clips show each man separate, obviously under distress.....being forced to convert to Islam. Both Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig read messages in references to Abu Ghraib and it is being reported of them.... pleading to President Bush and PM Tony Blair to embrace Islam....Both men are in Muslim attire and reading from the Koran. We all know they are doing whatever it takes to stay alive.

Both Shep and Amy referred to the earlier report of Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Saturday that he hoped the case of two kidnapped FOX News journalists would be resolved "in the coming hours." However, we all hope and pray that Steve and Olaf will be released soon.

Excerpt: They were shown separately sitting cross-legged, reading a statement which Fox said was an announcement that they had converted to Islam. At times in the video they were wearing long Muslim robes.
Wiig called on leaders of the West to stop "hiding behind the 'I don't negotiate with terrorists' myth". He then read some words in Arabic.
"The issue of the two kidnapped journalists is on the way to being resolved," Seyam told Reuters. "Efforts are under way with several parties to secure their release within the coming hours."

More to come.....This is very disturbing.
