There is still uncertainty over the fate of Marine corporal Wassif Ali Hassoun, taken hostage more than a week ago in Iraq. Over the weekend an internet message claimed the soldier had been executed, but his alleged captors are now backing off that claim. His family in Lebanon remains hopeful.

SOT: Sami Ali Hassoun/Brother

"He's a very peaceful and loving person and I hope nothing bad will happen to him."
At Hassoun's Utah home, local Muslims are confident that a common faith with his captors will lead to his release.

SOT: Imam Shauib-Uddin

"We still have hope and there's reason for hope obviously."

And there are new images from supporters of Iraqi militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Time Magazine has released what appears to be a terrorist recruiting video featuring brazen attacks on coalition interests...death and destruction caught on tape.
(Nats: Abu Ghraib Prison)


While Americans celebrate Independence Day, it is also independence day for some prisoners at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison. Coalition forces have released dozens more inmates as part of a continuing program to cut down on the number of prisoners held at detention centers.

And as sovereignty struggles to take hold in Iraq, insurgents remain on the offensive. Oil pipelines, the life blood of the country, are a favorite target. Saboteurs have struck again south of Baghdad where fire fighters battled massive flames as millions of Iraqi dollars went up in smoke.
Suggested Close: While the attacks continue, another adversary has re-emerged: Rebel Cleric Muqtada Al Sadr. Al Sadr had expressed his limited support of the new government but has now renewed his call for attacks against foreign occupiers and the new Iraqi government.

An eight year old Lynchburg boy drowned in a swimming pool over the weekend. It happened around three thirty Saturday afternoon at the Miller Home of Lynchburg for Girls. Johnathan William Lyons died after attempts made by church staff and firefighters to revive him were unsuccessful. A group from the New Dearington Baptist Church had rented the pool for the afternoon. The lifeguard who was supposed to be on duty had not shown up. A pastor who directs youth activities was beside the pool, but did NOT see Lyons enter the pool area.

Police in Abingdon say a doctor from North Carolina has been charged with killing his father and dumping his body in Southwest Virginia.
41-year-old Doctor Vince Gilmer of Fletcher, North Carolina was charged yesterday with first-degree murder in the death of 60-year-old Dalton Gilmer.
Washington County Sheriff Fred Newman says investigators became suspicious after learning that Gilmer checked his father out of a nursing home in North Carolina a week ago, but did NOT report him missing until after the body had been found along a road near Abingdon.
Doctor Gilmer lived in the area in the mid-1990s while studying as a resident at Bristol Regional Medical Center.

Many residents, however, oppose the plan because of concerns over increased traffic and buffer zones.
