Carroll's Release Sparks Relief, Joy at UMass

Boston-based reporter Jill Carroll says her nearly three months in captivity in Iraq was like"falling off a cliff...waiting to hit the ground."

She was released yesterday in Baghdad and is receiving medical attention in the U.S. occupied Green Zone.

The news of her release came as a relief to students and professors on the campus of UMass Amherst, where Carroll graduated in 1999.
