(CNN) -- Britain, Italy and Greece on Sunday confirmed that hostages from their countries were among seven construction workers reported killed in Nigeria over the weekend.

"This was an act of cold-blooded murder, which I condemn in the strongest terms," British Foreign Secretary William Hague said in a statement announcing that a British construction worker was among the dead.

Nigerian militant group Ansar al-Muslimeen claimed responsibility for the February kidnappings of the seven construction workers from an office in northeastern Nigeria. The group, widely known as Ansaru, released images of some of the bodies Saturday.

The War on Terror carries on but we don't hear much about it with this syncophantic press.

I clearly remember the Bush days when headlines blared the foreign WOT news day after day relentlessly. Now it's all about Michelle's appearance at the Oscars, the domestic economy, and how bad the GOP is.

Nigeria is going to completely devolve into civil war soon. The country is evenly divided along religious and cultural lines, the government is hopelessly corrupt and there have been various signs of a complete breakdown lately, including Nigeria becoming the new center for piracy in Africa. I saw one report that we have 100 “military advisors” in the country.

Hot times in Africa’s largest oil exporter. Remember what we did in Libya and they are only fourth on the list.
