The FBI is asking for the public's help identifying individuals who have traveled—or are planning to travel—overseas to engage in combat alongside terrorist organizations.

The FBI is also seeking information about the identity of an English-speaking individual and others seen in a propaganda video released last month by the group calling itself the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL.

The video depicts a man whose face is obscured by a mask alternating seamlessly between English and Arabic in pro-ISIL dialogue intended to appeal to a Western audience.

The 55-minute video was released on September 19. The FBI released a short segment from the video in the hopes someone might recognize the man through his voice and appearance.

A form for submitting potential tips and leads has been established at the FBI's website.
