In videotaped and written statements mailed to Aljazeera, a previously unknown Iraqi group has claimed it has executed a US soldier it captured in April.
Keith Maupin, 20, of Batavia, Ohio, who was listed as captured on 16 April by the US Department of Defence (DOD), was executed because the Bush administration did not change its policies in Iraq, the statement said.
The group - calling itself the Persistent Power Against the Enemies of God and the Prophet - claimed the execution was also in revenge for what it called atrocities committed against "Muslim martyrs" in Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Algeria.
