Iraq captors say US hostage killed

#1
An Iraqi rebel group has said in an internet posting that it killed a kidnapped US security consultant.

The claim's authenticity could not be immediately verified.

The Islamic Army in Iraq on Thursday said it had killed "the American security consultant for the Housing Ministry," after the United States failed to respond to its demand of the release of Iraqi prisoners.

A video issued by the group was aired on Tuesday on the Aljazeera Arabic satellite channel showing the hostage - identified as Ronald Schulz, 40, an industrial electrician from Alaska - sitting with his hands tied behind his back.

Thursday's statement, posted on an Islamic rebel Web forum, did not name the hostage and provided no evidence he had been killed, but said pictures of the slaying would be released later
