It has been announced by the terrorist group the Jihad Organization
that an Italian reporter Giuliana Sgrena, 56, is to be released in "the next few days". Sgrena was ambushed and taken hostage
Feb. 4, along with 3 Iraqi's, in her own car. The three Iraqi's were later released. Sgrena has also been very strongly outspoken against the war even before the invasion of Iraq in March 2003.
"After the judicial committee of the Jihad Organization interrogated the Italian captive Giuliana Sgrena, it has been found that the Italian captive is not involved in spying for the infidels in Iraq," the group said in a statement posted on a Web site that frequently carries messages from Islamic militants.
"In response to the appeal made by the Muslim Scholars' Association, we, in the Jihad Organization, will free the Italian captive in the next few days," the statement added.
The statement's authenticity could not be verified.
