Italian hostages in Iraq released

Thank God the terrorists yhugs di not behead these 2 women. all they were doing was trying to help the Iraqi people. they were against the war and were helping the people of Iraq anyway. If they did murder these 2 women it would have been real bad for their image. they had nothing to do with the US invasion of Iraq. I wish them the best of luck and hopefully they will continue their help for the Iraqi people.

Italian hostages in Iraq released

Baghdad, Iraq, Sep. 28 (UPI) -- Two Italian women were released Tuesday by their suspected Iraqi kidnappers and handed over to the Italian embassy in Baghdad

Al-Jazeera television reported the release of Simona Barri and Simona Torreta to the Italian charge d'affaires.

The Qatari television station quoted security sources as saying the handover took place in the presence of mediators who worked on the release.

The identity of the mediators were not released.

Barri's father, Luciano, confirmed from Rome the release of his daughter and her colleague.

"Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi contacted us to tell us the news," Barri said in a telephone interview with al-Jazeera.

"We have no information about the identity of the kidnappers and all we got were the briefings from the press office at the foreign ministry," Barri said, adding that he did not have a chance to speak to his daughter yet.
