Guardian journalist freed in Iraq

Staff
Thursday October 20, 2005

Rory Carroll, the 33 year-old Guardian journalist kidnapped yesterday in Baghdad, was freed tonight.

The news of his freedom came in a telephone call from Carroll to his parents, Jo and Kate, at their home in Dublin. His father Jo said: "He told me that he had been released, that he was perfectly OK and in an Iraqi government compound having a beer.

"He just said 'I am safe and well and I have all my limbs on. I was in my cell and representatives of the Iraqi government came for me, they had a government car waiting. I have been in Baghdad all the time'."
