BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- An Australian television network broadcast footage on Saturday of armed militants in Iraq holding a man who appeared to be an American, as U.S. and coalition forces searched for foreign nationals who have been kidnapped or reported missing in recent days.
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation showed a car stopping on a highway and masked, armed men getting out and asking journalists to look at a hostage, who was sitting in the back seat next to a gunman.
A journalist asked the man what happened and the man, white and middle-aged, replied in a slight Southern U.S. accent that "they attacked our convoy. That's all I'm going to say."
It is unclear if the man on the video is referring to an incident Friday when a fuel convoy was attacked near Baghdad International Airport.
He gave his name. Then the men got into the car and drove off.
The network said the video was shot on the road between Baghdad and Fallujah, where U.S. Marines have been fighting pitched battles with insurgents for control of the town.
