MOSUL, Iraq — Relatives of a beheaded Iraqi priest said his captors had demanded a church apology for recent papal comments about Islam. They said the Orthodox priest was abducted Sunday by an unidentified group, which demanded a ransom. The kidnappers also wanted the priest’s church to condemn controversial recent remarks by Pope Benedict. In a speech last month, the pope quoted a medieval text describing Islam as a religion spread by the sword.
