Earlier, a- video appearing on a website thought to be affiliated with groups sympathetic to Jordanian-born fugitive Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, identified the captive as Eugene Armstrong and showed a masked man cutting his head off with a knife.- 
The US official said Armstrong's body had been recovered in Iraq, but did not specify where- or when this happened.
The video showed the banner of the Tawhid and Jihad group, which said it had seized Armstrong along with another American and a Briton and set a 48-hour deadline on Saturday to kill them.- 
In the video, five armed and masked men stood around the hostage, who was dressed in an orange overall typically worn by .Muslim detainees in- the US prison at Guantanamo Bay - 

Tawhid and Jihad, in a video posted on the internet on Saturday, said it would slit the throats of Armstrong, American Jack Hensley and Briton Kenneth Bigley - unless Iraqi women were freed from the Abu Ghraib and Umm Qasr prisons by Monday.- 
The US military says no women are being held in the two prisons specified, except for two who are thought to have worked on an illicit weapons programme.
