A propaganda video released by the Islamic State terrorist group shows part of what happened in the 2017 attack that killed four American soldiers in Niger.

The clip appeared to come from the helmet of one of the soldiers killed last October, when 11 Special Forces members and around 30 Nigerian soldiers were ambushed in the west African country.

Though many Americans may not have been aware that the U.S. had a military presence in Niger, Army staff sergeants Bryan Black, Jeremiah Johnson, La David Johnson and Dustin Wright were killed in the fight, along with militants and five Nigerian soldiers.

The U.S. military has yet to release its account of what happened, though is likely to do so this week, CBS News reported.
