Roy Hallums has been set free.
Roy Hallums called from Baghdad on Wednesday, Susan Hallums told CNN.
A Web site devoted to the hostage said “Roy IS FREE!!!!!! 9/7/05.” The U.S. military confirmed Hallums was rescued.
“He said that he was well, and he was heading home soon,” the ex-wife said.
Speaking by phone from her home in California, she told CNN he said he had been “tied and bound” outside Falluja, a city in the western province of Anbar, in a farmhouse and cannot walk well.
Otherwise, he said he is doing OK, she told CNN.
Obviously, this is great news.
