Fox News journalists freed in Gaza

Two Fox News journalists, who were held by Palestinian militants for nearly two weeks, were released by their abductors Sunday. Correspondent Steve Centanni, 60, and cameraman Olaf Wiig, 36, were dropped off at Gaza City's Beach Hotel by Palestinian security officials.After his release, Centanni told Fox News that during his capture, he was at times held face down in a dark garage, bound in painful positions, and that he and Wiig were forced at gunpoint to make statements, including that they had converted to Islam.

"I'm a little emotional because this is overwhelming, but I'm fine," Centanni said. "I'm so happy to be freed."

On Sunday, before the journalists were freed, a new video was released, showing Wiig and Centanni dressed in beige robes. In the video, both made anti-Western remarks. The kidnappers claimed both men had converted to Islam.
