Jill Carroll, the freelance reporter taken hostage in Iraq January 7th, has been freed, the New York Times reports.

“She was released this morning, she’s talked to her father and she’s fine,” said David Cook, Washington bureau chief of The Christian Science Monitor.

Carroll was kidnapped on Jan. 7 in Baghdad’s western Adil neighborhood while going to interview Sunni Arab politician Adnan al-Dulaimi. Her translator was killed in the attack about 300 yards from al-Dulaimi’s office.

Carroll was reporting for the Christian Science Monitor when taken hostage.
