Captured Italian Reporter Pleads for Troops Pull-Out
She was shown by the Dubai-based al-Arabiya TV channel begging her government to put an end to the occupation.
Sgrena, whose speech was translated into Arabic by the channel, wore a light green jacket and a shirt, locking her fingers together and shaking her hands as if begging.
On her upper left corner, appeared words of "Mujahedeen Without Borders" written in red Arabic script.
Sgrena, 56, who was herself a vocal opponent of the Iraqi invasion, was kidnapped February 4, while conducting interviews on the streets of Baghdad. She was a reporter for the communist daily Il Manifesto.
The Italian daily was strongly opposed to the US-led invasion of Iraq. It has harshly criticized Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi for his decision to deploy 3,000 troops in Iraq as part of the US-led multinational force.
