A man who identified himself on a video broadcast by Al-Aribiya as Noureddin Zakaria of Khartoum, was taken hostage in Ramadi by the terrorist group the 1920 Revolution Brigades
. He was working as an interpreter for Titan Corporation of San Diego which provides communications services for the US Government. In a twist of ironic fate the 1920's brigade is also claiming to be responsible for the bombing of an Al-Aribiya office in Iraq
The man, who identified himself as Noureddin Zakaria of Khartoum, appeared on al-Arabiya TV flanked by armed men.
"I hope and call on the company to stop its operations in Iraq to guarantee my release," he said.
Behind him was a green banner with the words "The National Islamic Resistance, the 1920 Revolution Brigades", the Associated Press reports.
