Kim Sun-il, 33, was beheaded by an Al-Quaida linked terrorist group, Monotheism and Jihad, on June 22, 2004. Kim worked for a South Korean company supplying the U.S. military in Iraq. Kim's kidnappers threatened to kill him unless South Korea canceled a troop deployment to Iraq. The Seoul government rejected the demand, subsequently increasing their military presence by a number of 3,000 soldiers.
