American forces liberated more than two hundred hostages yesterday in villages in the district of Muqdadiya the majority of which are Iraqi police.
In Diyala police source who wished to remain anonymous confirmed that American forces repositioned in the villages and Ashakragh Sensl close to the town of Muqdadiya carried out raids, searches and range of regions and the surrounding orchards.
He added that the American forces had found several prisons belonging to al-Qaeda and containing more than two hundred abducted hostages. The source explained that the majority of the abductees are the elements of the police who had been abducted at different times and over a period of months.
Nice that they finally found more than heads and decapitated bodies. Al Queda short on $$$$, holding for ransom?
Ping. Check the original source.
The Burtha News Agency is the offical agency of the SCIRI.
Hope they took pictures of the conditions the hostages were being kept in.
"Hope they took pictures of the conditions the hostages were being kept in." ........................ For who? Feinstein and Boxer wouldn't care, they are only interested in faux torture by US troops.
I read the original Arabic text and the translation in English as posted above is accurate. This an Iraqi Shia website and it is seems to be pro-US as I have read some of the headlines and that is a good thing to read. Notice that they do not use American occupation forces or any of typical BS, but rather American forces and they use words like The American forces LIBERATED , it is good to read stuff like this.
There is one glaring omission in this story and others like it. It is frustrating and angering and... GGGGRRRRRrrrrrrrrr!
How can 200 hostages be liberated without finding and killing any of the killers involved?
How much infrastructure is necessary to kidnap and hold that many policemen?
My gut feeling is several times that "200" figure.
Without killing the rats, the kidnappings and murders will continue forever!
That is an intruguing statement.
Can you share with us how you came to know Arabic well enough to verify a translation?
I have often been tempted to learn it, for the benefit of learning cuss words and insults, if nothing else...
As always, thanks for your valuable input.
I am originally from Lebanon, Arabic is my native language.
You are welcome :)
Let me echo another poster, and add my thanks for your always useful input.
You always appear to live up to your name.
