Killing threads, and os.system()

I've a program that launches a lot of threads and each of them
launches a os.system("my_command").
My program also keeps a list of the launched threads, so I can make
"for" loops on the threads.
My aim is to kill everything with ctrl-C (KeyboardInterrupt).
Of course I tried to do
except KeyboardInterrupt :
for task in task_list :
#task_list is the list of threads to be killed
It does not work.
How can I produce an "emergency" stop of all processes, including the
externals programs that were called by os.system() ?
My aim is of course to write an ultimate log file containing the status
of the program when KeyboardInterupt was raised. (if not, the unix
command "kill" does the job ;) )
Thanks for any help
have a good day
