CAIRO, Egypt - An al-Qaida-linked insurgent group released a video Thursday showing the body of a U.S. pilot killed in Iraq last year, a photograph of his identification card and footage of his aircraft\'s wreckage site, U.S. monitors said.
The video, more than 11 minutes long with English subtitles, was first obtained by the IntelCenter monitoring group in suburban Washington. The footage bears the insignia of the Islamic State of Iraq, an al-Qaida front group, and its al-Furqan media production wing, the monitors said.
Titled \"The Missing,\" the video shows the ID card photograph of Air Force pilot Maj. Troy L. Gilbert, whose F-16CG crashed Nov. 27, 2006, some 20 miles northwest of Baghdad.
It also shows the pilot\'s body laid out on a plastic sheet in Air Force uniform, although his face is not shown, said Ben Venzke, head of IntelCenter. It was not immediately clear if the body was filmed at the crash site or elsewhere, Venzke said.
