Iraq's Sadr movement says it frees US soldier

BAGHDAD - Followers of Iraqi Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr handed over a captive American soldier to the United Nations alive on Saturday, two senior officials in Sadr's movement said.
The officials said the soldier, whom they named phonetically as Randy Michael or Randy Michael Hill, had been handed over to the UN mission in Iraq. A spokeswoman for the UN mission said she was not immediately able to comment.
The United States military said in February that it had recovered the remains of the last soldier it believed to be missing in Iraq.
