Confusion over deadline for kidnapped journalists

I figured the French would have surrenfered by now. BUt they are sticking to the no head caps or scarfs. Geez what a free and tolernat place France is. Why did they do it in the first place?????
Confusion over deadline for kidnapped journalists Julia Day and agencies Wednesday September 1, 2004 The fate of two French journalists kidnapped in Iraq hangs in the balance as the deadline set by their kidnappers appeared to have been extended until this evening, according to reports.

But confusion remains as to whether the deadline set by Islamist militants expires tonight - 24 hours later than previously thought - or whether it has already run out.

The Arab League secretary general, Amr Moussa, and other officials said they believed the deadline was extended by 48 hours from Monday to Wednesday evening, not by 24 hours to Tuesday evening, as previously thought.
