Kidnappers have lifted their threat to kill Micah Garen.
Al-Sadr aide Sheik Awas al-Khafaji said Saturday he had spoken to mediators who said the death threat had been lifted and they were working out a way
to have Garen released.
"We hope that he will be released today and our efforts would be fruitful," he said Saturday by telephone from Nasiriyah. "As for the Iraqi
translator, we have received assurances that he is going to be released with the journalist."

An other journalist believed to be in Najaf, Italian freelance journalist Enzo Baldoni, has been missing since Friday.
The Italian Foreign Ministry expressed hope that the reporter had not been taken hostage, saying he could have moved on to nearby Kufa and might be
unable to communicate from there.
