As Sahab Video Shows U.S. Humvee Ambushed by Militants in Farah

A short video produced by al Qaeda's mouthpiece As Sahab Media and released on the Internet showed a U.S. convoy coming under attack in what the video said was Farah province in western Afghanistan.

The convoy is seen moving on the road, when suddenly an IED explosion detonates not far from the Humvee in the back. The vehicle wasn't damaged by the explosion whatsoever, but after a few moments of heavy gunshots sound in the background and the camera shaking, the abandoned Humvee is seen in flames on the road. The video ends with pictures of weapons seized from the vehicle.
