Richard Butler rescued

[video:youtube:fvMB0cOHW4s] Freelance photographer Richard Butler was rescued by Iraqi soldiers. He was working for CBS News when he was kidnapped on February 10. Iraqi soldiers found him by chance when they happened to be searching the house he was being kept in,

“The Iraqi army stormed the house and overcame my guards,” Butler said. “They burst through the door and I had my hood on, which I had to have on all the time, and they just shouted something at me and I pulled my hood off and they ran me down the road. Thank you, and I’m looking forward to seeing my family and my friends at CBS, and thank you again.” link

Five other British hostages are still being held in Iraq some 11 months since being abducted. CBS News has video of Richard talking about his release as does the BBC.
