U.S.-led forces freed three Christian peace activists held hostage in
Iraq on Thursday in an operation mounted two weeks after the kidnappers tortured and killed their American colleague.
Canadians Jim Loney and Harmeet Sooden and 74-year-old British pacifist Norman Kember from the Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) were snatched in west Baghdad in November.
The tortured body of American Tom Fox was found dumped in the capital two weeks ago.
