Arab Television Shows Blindfolded Hostage

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - A blindfolded man described as an Iraqi-American being held hostage in Iraq (news - web sites) was shown pleading for help on an Arab television station Thursday.

The man, speaking in English, identified himself as Aban Elias and said he was from Denver and worked with the Pentagon (news - web sites) as a civilian engineer. He was wearing a black-and-white kaffiyeh, or headdress, over his eyes.

He appealed to Islamic agencies to win his release.
