An Islamist Web site carried a videotape purporting to show the beheading in Iraq of a man identified as an "Egyptian spy" working with US forces, Reuters reported.

The tape showed the Egyptian giving his name as Mohammed Mutawalli and saying he had helped U.S. forces pick targets for their attacks on insurgents. Masked men were seen to push the Egyptian to the ground and decapitate him with a knife. His severed head was later held up for the camera.

The videotape is said to have been made by the al-Tawhid wal Jihad terror group headed by Jordanian Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who has been accused by Washington of links to Osama Bin Laden.

The same terror group obducted two Bulgarians and claimed responsibility for the beheading of US businessman Nicholas Berg and South Korean translator Kim Sun-il.

Meanwhile two Jordanian and two Lebanese truck drivers kidnapped by Iraqi militant groups were released on Tuesday.
