The Islamic State released a video Tuesday purportedly showing the beheading of another kidnapped American journalist. Steven Sotloff disappeared while reporting from Syria in August 2013, but his family kept the news secret, fearing harm to him if they went public. This image is from an earlier video in which Sotloff's life was threatened. Here's a look at other Americans who have been detained abroad. Some are alive. Some are not.
