Christian Peacemaker Teams has released new photographs of former Saultite James Loney, who's facing execution this coming Thursday at the hands of Iraqi militants who kidnapped him and three other peacemakers one week ago after a meeting with a Muslim scholar's association at Baghdad University.

The images show Loney both at home in Ontario and in Iraq.

Loney was leading the CPT delegation to Iraq at the time of the abduction.

Christian Peacemaker Teams describes itself as "a program of Brethren, Quaker and Mennonite Churches and other Christians that support nonviolence."
