‘Proof’ of American Hostages
Posted on Jun 4, 2007
A video has surfaced that shows what appears to be the identifications cards of two missing American soldiers. The Islamic State of Iraq, a Sunni insurgent coalition, has claimed responsibility for the capture of three soldiers, one of whom was later found dead.
US TV networks showed pictures from a video apparently made by the Islamic State of Iraq, an umbrella group which says it has the two men.
The two soldiers, Specialist Alex Jimenez, 25, and Private Byron Fouty, 19, were seized in an ambush on 12 May.
The body of a third captured soldier was later found in the River Euphrates to the south of Baghdad.
