The mother of one of five Iraqi female detainees released [last] Thursday expressed confidence that American journalist Jill Carroll will be released soon.
"She'll be fine and she will come out very soon because she loves Iraq and she loves Iraqis, so God will never forget her," says Siham Faraj, the mother of Hala Khalid Wahid who was detained by US forces in Iraq four months ago.
But she added, "I don't think Jill Carroll's situation has anything to do with the release of my daughter, but we definitely feel her pain....
"And to her mother, I say: I know how painful it is when a daughter is detained. But don't worry, madam. Your daughter is a great woman and she will be fine."
