News in Review Iraq Rescue: Two Canadians are Freed

On March 23, 2006, British and American soldiers stormed a house in Baghdad and rescued three Christian peace activists. The three men, including two Canadians, James Loney and Harmeet Singh Sooden, had been kidnapped and held as hostages for almost four months. A fourth member of the group was killed by the kidnappers two weeks before the others were rescued. In this News in Review story we'll look at the ordeal of the two Canadians, and show you what one of them said when he finally came home.
