No Word on Hostages

Tommy Hamill, a native of Macon, Miss., was working as a truck driver when he was kidnapped by Iraqi insurgents Friday.

The insurgents threatened to kill and burn him unless U.S. troops withdrew from the city of Fallujah by 6:00 a.m. Sunday.

Hundreds of people gathered in Macon in support of the Hamill family and prayed for his safe return at a vigil Sunday night.

A member of the U.S. appointed governing council in Iraq said Monday 12 people being held hostage had been released.
