Last Thursday, the Death Squad of Iraqi Resistance said it was holding four Jordanians to put pressure on their transport company to stop cooperation with U.S. forces in Iraq.
Four Jordanian drivers held hostage by guerrillas in Iraq have been freed and are now staying with a local elder in the town of Fallujah, relatives say.

The group is also attempting to pressure Arab governments to end support for U.S. led coalition forces. However, their close ties to Fallujah (i.e. the previous regime), may be influencing who they release and who they behead.

Al Jazeera TV reported Al-Qaida ally Al Zarqawi`s group also released two Turkish hostages in Iraq.

"Due to the Turkish firm's decision to stop sending supplies to U.S. forces in Iraq, the Tawhid and Jihad Group has decided to free the two Turkish hostages," said a videotaped statement from the group broadcast on the Arabic-language channel.


The International Transporters` Association (UND) decided yesterday to stop carrying goods and supplies to US forces in Iraq. (" target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow"> Turkey Launches Initiative To Rescue Hostages)

"When the brave people of Falluja knew that we were held hostage they raided the house and rescued us last night. We are all safe," one of the hostages, Ahmad Hassan Abu Jafaar, told Reuters in Baghdad by telephone."
