A video that shows an alleged al-Qaeda member being taken into custody by U.S. authorities is making its way across the Web.

The film obtained by The Washington Post and circulated by other news organizations allegedly shows the October 2013 capture of Anas al-Libi, 49, a Libyan wanted in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. More than 200 died in the simultaneous blasts in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and led to the placement of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden onto the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

In the video, a dark car pulls in front of a residence in Tripoli at dawn on Oct. 5 and a white van pulls up alongside. Immediately, at least three men get out of the van and surround the dark car. It appears weapons are pointed at the dark car. Someone exits the dark car and is whisked into the white van, which then pulls away. All of this happens in less than a minute.

Al-Libi is awaiting trial in New York and is being held in a special housing unit near the federal courthouse in Manhattan, the Post reports. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of terrorism.

According to the Post, the video represents a joint effort of the CIA, FBI and the U.S. Army's Delta Force. It was taken from a security camera.

Along with bin Laden and al-Qaeda, the Egyptian Islamic Jihad and al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, have been linked to the attacks.
