42 Kidnapped Students Rescued


The three wounded students were taken to a local hospital while Iraqi Forces searched for the missing students.

The soldiers identified a dump truck with a tarp over the back behaving suspiciously. The vehicle was stopped after warning shots were fired. The driver and passenger fled to a local residence.

Some of the students also left the area immediately after the truck was stopped. Thirty-four students were picked up by Iraqi Security Forces at the scene. The other eight students were picked up at a local combat outpost.

All 42 students are accounted for and are safe.

The three kidnappers were positively identified by the hostages and detained by Iraqi Police.

“This swift and professional response by the Iraqi Security Forces is just another example of their ability to serve and protect the Iraqi people,” said Maj. Gary Dangerfield, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment spokesperson.
