Her kidnappers had demanded that all women hostages be released in Iraq by February 25th or Carroll would be beheaded. Carroll’s release happened one day after her twin sister Katie pleaded on Arab television for mercy from her sister’s captors. Sources are saying that was pivotal in Jill Carroll’s release.
This is breaking news and we still do not have many details, but I am sure more will be forthcoming today. We are so happy for the Carroll family for this joyous news. Unfortunately, it must be noted that Carroll’s translator was butchered by the same men who kidnapped her.
I know so many were praying that this young woman’s life be spared. Thank God this story had a happy ending when almost all the men who faced this same situation were killed.
Our thoughts are with the Carroll family on what surely must be the happiest day of their lives. We can’t wait to welcome Ms. Carroll home. Oh, happy day, indeed!
