The two Canadians and one British members of peace group Christian Peacemakers have been rescued after four months of captivity. One of them includes Toronto activist James Loney (pictured here). Their captivity also led to a number of peace rallies in the Toronto area. We’re just glad to hear that the three men will be coming home soon and a little bit sad that the fourth hostage, American Tom Fox won’t be joining them. He was found dead earlier this month.
Here’s the story from the CBC, the Globe and because one of the hostages was British we’ll throw in the BBC’s story on this.
