In interviews and statements yesterday, relatives told of their agony of missing their loved ones.

The Foreign Office has imposed a virtual news blackout on the case, saying that sensitive negotiations for the men’s release are going on behind the scenes.

The kidnappers, who call themselves the Islamic Shiite Resistance in Iraq, have released two videos of the men over the past 12 months.

The Foreign Office said it did not want anything to get in the way of its negotiations, through third parties, to get the men released.
