One British and two Canadian peace activists held hostage in Iraq have been freed in an operation by multinational forces.From BBC News
Norman Kember, 74, of Pinner, north-west London, James Loney and Harmeet Singh Sooden, were three of four men seized in Baghdad in November.
Mr Kember is said to be in a "reasonable condition" while the two Canadians were taken to hospital.
The body of murdered US citizen Tom Fox was found in Baghdad two weeks ago.
Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said he had spoken to Mr Kember's wife Pat and that she was "absolutely delighted, elated with this news".
Prime Minister Tony Blair said he was delighted by the news, and particularly pleased for the freed men and their families.
He also congratulated everyone involved in the rescue operation. Mr Straw said British forces had taken part.
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

Actually he looks like Granddad. I saw the picture and I had to wonder if he had two tv sets in front of him.
