Kidnappers Release Fox Crew

8/27/2006 9:52 AM Eastern


Fox News journalists Steve Centani and Olaf Wiig were freed from captivity in Gaza on Sunday, after two weeks in captivity.

Centanni and Wiig were dropped off at a hotel in Gaza by Palestinian security officials, but it’s not clear how their freedom was obtained.
Centanni told Fox News in an interview that he and Wiig were forced at gunpoint to make videotaped statements. “We were forced to convert to Islam at gunpoint,” Centanni said. “It was something we felt we had to do because they had the guns, and we didn’t know what the hell was going on.”
