Jill Carroll Due in Boston Tomorrow

April 1, 2006 - Posted at 1:02 p.m. CST

RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany (AP) _ Freed hostage Jill Carroll is

due to return to the United States tomorrow.

A spokesman for the Massachusetts Port Authority says Carroll

will be on a flight that's expected to land at Logan International

Airport in Boston late tomorrow morning.

The freelance journalist was kidnapped in Baghdad on January

seventh and released on Thursday. She was flown to Ramstein Air

Base in Germany today aboard a military transport plane.

In a video posted on an Islamist Web site yesterday, her

abductors said they released her because the United States had met

some of its demands in freeing Iraqi women from prison.

The kidnappers had demanded the release of all female detainees.

Some were released but U-S officials said it had nothing to do with

the kidnappers' demands, and some are still being held.
