Guardian Journalist freed in Iraq

(Press Association)

I was, like many others, very relieved when Guardian journalist, Rory Carroll, was freed in Baghdad yesterday, after being held hostage for thirty-six hours.It was one of those situations when you prayed that everything would be alright but feared what could happen.
I did hope that his Irish background would be noted and that would help aid his release and that appears to be the case.
But it is a horrible reminder for any Westerner in Iraq that they have to be extremely careful with regards to their own personal safety.
