After their ordeal, they were taken to his home - where they phoned anxious relatives.
They said their kidnappers had nothing to do with the insurgency , and never made any demands.

But the men still urged others not to co-operate with Americans in Iraq.

Oncamera bridge: Elaine Cobbe, CBS News locator: Baghdad Kidnapping has become a growth industry in Iraq - for ransom or for political ends.
Poorly-protected foreign truck drivers are an easy target. And an effective way to slow the delivery of vital supplies to American-led forces.

Turkish truckers vowed to halt transporting fuel, food and other supplies....but so far, the impact has been slight.
BUT THE DAILY ROUND OF VIOLENCE ...CONTINUES TO HAVE A SERIOUS IMPACT.
Fierce gunbattles broke out Wednesday between Iraqi police and militants in the northern city of Mosul.
THERE WERE SEVERAL DEATHS and at least twenty-six wounded. Local government officials say the gunbattle was sparked by an attempted bank robbery.
Just another example of the (APTN FOOTAGE)widespread problem of crime in this country - where guns are everywhere and lawlessness is still the order of the day.
