Islamabad, Feb 14: The kidnappers have released a video of the kidnapped American official, John Solecki, the head of the UNHCR office in Quetta. The captive, kidnapped on Feb 2 is shown blindfolded and he is seeking the world body's help for his release.

"It is a message for the United Nations. I am not feeling well. I am sick. I am in trouble," Solecki said, speaking slowly, in the video released on Friday, Feb 13.

"Please help to resolve the problem soon so I can gain my relief," the hostage, shown blindfolded, said in the video that was apparently shot with a mobile phone.

The kidnappers set three demands for Solecki's release – the release of 141 Baloch women within 72 hours, the recovery of 6,000 'missing' Baloch nationals and the solution of the problems of Balochistan province through the UN Charter.
