Cash freed Canadian hostage
Toronto - The family of a Canadian businessman released by hostage takers in Iraq paid $100000 in cash to win his freedom, a report said on Thursday.

Naji al-Kuwaiti, who worked as an importer-exporter in Iraq, was released on Tuesday after being held by unidentified kidnappers.

The Toronto Star newspaper quoted an unidentified federal official as saying that the family paid a ransom which was passed to the kidnappers by Canadian diplomats.

Canadian officials have refused to comment on speculation that a ransom was paid, and have divulged little about how al-Kuwaiti's case was resolved, citing a request by the family.
