US-led troops involved in fighting against insurgents in the Iraqi city of Falluja have found four imprisoned men believed to be Iraqi hostages.
Three of the men were contractors working for the US military, a US marines spokesman said, and the fourth said he was a taxi-driver.
All of the men had been beaten and starved and were wearing handcuffs.
US-led forces say they have rid more than 70% of the the city of insurgents in the battle, which began on Tuesday.
Thank God that some good has come out of all this. Now if we can just find where they have the rest of the hostages, we might be able to do some good
over there. I sincerly believe that had we handeled Iraq in a completly different way, there would never have been any hostages.
The only reason for leaving them alive would be unintentional DISINFORMATION. Otherwise, they would have been executed. I seriously hope that any US
commanders take any of their info with a grain of salt, as it was likely falsified in the hostages presence...
