in an operation by multinational forces.

The British Hostage, Norman Kember and 2 Canadian hostages have been released this morning.
According to the BBC a force of British, Canadian and Iraqi Military Forces obtained the releases today.
It doesn't seem to often ( if at all ) that they release hostages. Too bad it didn't always work out that way.

Just for the record, American forces were also involved in the rescue.
They weren't actually released; they were rescued. The kidnappers were not in the house where they were found.
