Carroll is Free

The great news today, of course, is that journalist Jill Carroll has been freed after almost three months in captivity in Iraq -- which makes it an especially good day at the Christian Science Monitor.

But as a sobering sidebar, here courtesy of Reporters Without Borders, are the names of three other journalists still held hostage in Iraq that I dare say precious few of us have ever heard of.

Journalists Rim Zeid and Marwan Khazaal of the TV channel al-Sumariya were kidnapped in Baghdad, on 1st February 2006. Ali Abdullah Fayad, journalist on the tri-weekly al-Safir was abducted in Kut, south-east of the capital on 21 March 2006.

They are Iraqi reporters.
