An Iraqi television reporter who was kidnapped in Baghdad last week was freed Monday, his station said Saturday. Muntadhar al-Zaidi, a 28-year-old reporter for the Iraqi satellite channel al-Baghdadiyah, was released and appeared to be in good health, according to an editor at the channel who spoke on condition of anonymity because of safety concerns. No ransom was paid, the editor said. Al-Zaidi was home with his relatives by mid-afternoon on Monday, the editor said. He would not elaborate with any details of the release or those responsible for al-Zaidi's kidnapping.
