It is with great happiness that I can tell you our correspondent was released this afternoon in Baghdad, after approximately 72 hours in detention.
We still cannot provide his name or any more specific information, as we have not been able to reach him for permission and the specific details about his detention.
His brother contacted our correspondent, Omar Abdullah, to tell him the good news.
As soon as we have more information, we will update the site immediately.
I would like to thank all of you who made an effort to send the word out about our correspondent and for all the support we’ve been provided in the last 24 hours.
Alive in Baghdad will continue producing media from Iraq, despite these recent events, and we hope to say the same about our recently released colleague, but only time will tell.
