Ansar al-Sunnah Video Attack on ContractorsTopics: 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.

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.
