CBS News Crew Said To Be In Baghdad

Reports have surfaced out of Baghdad that the four members of the CBS News crew, led by correspondent Bob Simon and missing since shortly after the Gulf War began, are being held in the Iraqi capital.

The crew was apprehended in Kuwait two weeks ago, Iraq military sources told CNN’s Peter Arnett. The Baghdad-based Arnett was told the four men are in good shape, but were still being questioned by Iraqi authorities. Arnett reported that his sources had told him the decision whether or not to release the crew would be made by Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
