A POW is rescued and safe!

Just found this on my ISP's headlines. Great news!

U.S. Prisoner of War Rescued in Iraq

Updated 7:57 PM ET April 1, 2003

AS SAYLIYA CAMP, Qatar (Reuters) - A U.S. Army prisoner of war has been rescued in Iraq, a U.S. military spokesman said on Wednesday.

"Coalition forces have conducted a successful rescue mission of a U.S. Army prisoner of war held captive in Iraq, Brigadier General Vincent Brooks told reporters in a prepared statement.

"The soldier has been returned to a Coalition-controlled area."

Brooks gave no further details but said more information would be released as soon as possible.

CNN identified the rescued person as Jessica Lynch, 19, from Palestine, West Virginia. CNN quoted Lynch's father as saying she had been taken to hospital.

It said in an unconfirmed report that Lynch had been rescued from Nassiriya, where five members of the U.S. 507th Maintenance Company went missing and were later shown on Iraqi state television on March 23.
