Iraqi Official Says Jill Carroll Still Alive After Deadline

A ray of hope regarding hostaged journalist Jill Carroll:

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The Iraqi Interior Minister believes that kidnapped American journalist Jill Carroll remains alive, his office said on Monday, one day after the deadline set by her captors for killing her.

In an interview with ABC, the interior minister, Bayan Jabr said he knew who abducted the 28-year-old freelance reporter for The Christian Science Monitor on Jan. 7.

The kidnappers, a formerly unknown group calling themselves the Revenge Brigades, have publicly demanded the release of all women detainees in Iraq, but Boudai indicated the group provided more specific conditions that he refused to reveal.
More from Natasha at Mental Mayhem, who personally knows Jill.
