Families' plea over Iraq hostages


The families of two British men who were kidnapped in Iraq in 2007 have made a Christmas appeal for their release.

Peter Moore, an IT consultant from Lincoln, and Alan McMenemy, a security guard, were seized at the Iraqi Ministry of Finance in Baghdad.

Families appealed to captors for the release of the two men and to show compassion at Christmas.

James Robbins reports.
