Terror hits home

Our prayers are with the Johnson family

A U.S. flag billows in the breeze next to a yellow ribbon
on the front porch of kidnap victim Paul Johnson's sister
near Tuckerton, New Jersey, June 16, 2004. Saudi Arabia
will not give in to al Qaeda's demands to free jailed
militants terrorists to secure the release of Johnson, who
was kidnapped last week, Saudi official sources said
Wednesday. Al Qaeda has threatened to kill engineer Paul
Marshal Johnson unless Saudi authorities free the militants
terrorists by Friday. REUTERS/Tim Shaffer
