Al Qaeda Beheads U.S. Hostage in Saudi, Site Says
DUBAI (Reuters) - Al Qaeda militants said they beheaded a U.S. engineer they had held hostage in Saudi Arabia since last week and displayed his severed head in pictures posted on an Islamist Web site Friday.

Al Qaeda had said the Saudi government had until Friday to free jailed militants or it would kill Paul Marshall Johnson.
