Abducted in Iraq: An update on reporter Jill Carroll

At this writing, there are no major new developments in the case of freelance journalist Jill Carroll, who was abducted Jan. 7 while on assignment for the Monitor in Baghdad.

Monitor editor Richard Bergenheim issued the following statement Saturday:

"We continue to pursue every possible avenue in Baghdad to locate Jill and secure her release as soon as possible. This has been a difficult week for Jill's family and for us.
