iStockphoto/Thinkstock(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.
