US President Joe Biden held a call with family members of the 14 Americans still unaccounted for following the Hamas onslaught on Saturday.

Not all of those 14 Americans are believed to be hostages in Gaza, and White House National Security Council chairman John Kirby says the number of American hostages is likely “less than a handful.”
