British journalist tells of Iraq kidnap

A British journalist who was held hostage by Iraqi militia for over two months has spoken about his ordeal.

CBS producer Richard Butler was dragged from his hotel into a car by gunmen on 9 February and taken to a unknown location in Basra.

Butler, who has worked for Newsweek, the Sunday Telegraph and the New York Times, said he had prepared himself to die and reached the lowest point when he believed his translator had been killed. He found out, upon his release, the translator was alive and well.
