Ansar al-Sunnah Video Attack on Contractors

Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives

The Army of Ansar al-Sunnah claimed on May 11 to have taken a Japanese man hostage. The man, Akihiko Saito, was alleged by the al Qaeda linked group to have been taken from a convoy 'during a fierce battle in Western Iraq,' in what might be a reference to earlier reports of a successful U.S. attack near the Syrian border. The group also posted a photo of Akikiko Saito's passport.

The video of the Ansar al-Sunnah video attack on the contractors is now up.  Thanks to Ian of The Political Teen with help in compressing and editing the video, and inthebullpen for providing it

According to Chad, what is most disturing about the video is that they drag out dead and injured bodies into a pile and then shoot them. There is not any footage of Saito nor his capture in the film.

There are two white splotches in the video as presented, and were included in the original video.

You can download the video here.
