(WASHINGTON) — Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen is reportedly offering money for the killing of the American ambassador in Sanaa or an American soldier.
A video that claims to be from the group has announced a bounty of three kilograms of gold — roughly $160,000 — for the head of Gerald Feierstein. A bounty of $23,000 has been placed for any American soldier.
ABC News hasn’t verified the authenticity of the video. It was posted online separately, claiming to be part of a much longer video — one that ABC has authenticated.
