The Arab satellite station Al-Jazeera aired footage Sunday of interviews with what the station identified as captured American prisoners, and also showed bodies in uniform in an Iraqi morgue that it said were Americans.

The station said the prisoners were captured around Nasiriyah.

In the interviews, two of the prisoners identified their unit only as the 507th Maintenance.
