A kidnapped reporter for Britain's The Guardian newspaper was freed Thursday, a day after he was snatched, a person involved in winning his release said. The Guardian newspaper confirmed from London that Rory Carroll was released and unharmed. A resident of Baghdad's Sadr City neighborhood told The Associated Press that he was sitting next to the 33-year-old Carroll after his release. The resident spoke on condition of anonymity because he did not want his involvement in the release to be known. The resident said that criminals kidnapped Carroll and that a group of Sadr City residents raided the area in which he was held and freed him. His account of the release could not be confirmed. Carroll, who is Irish, was on assignment for The Guardian when he was kidnapped Wednesday in Baghdad.
