PM: Comments on kidnapped soldiers 'misunderstood'

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said on Tuesday that comments he made on Monday about kidnapped IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev were misunderstood, and that he did not mean to imply that they were dead. "From Israel's perspective, we believe they [the kidnapped soldiers] are still alive," Olmert told reporters in Kiryat Malachi.
