Reporter's Alleged Captors in Custody

Four Iraqis are in custody in connection with the kidnapping of Christian Science Monitor reporter Jill Carroll.

The reporter was abducted in January west of Baghdad and her translator was killed. Officials believe the journalist was held at one point near a home within view of a large United States military compound. Carroll was held captive for eighty two days before being released.

Christian Science Monitor editor Richard Bergenheim says he's relieved to know the men, who are believed to be involved in other kidnappings, are in custody.

Jill Carroll has not spoken publicly about her kidnapping but has written an article which the Christian Science Monitor will publish next week.
