UK hostage now home

12:59 pm on 2 January 2010

A freed British hostage is now home after being held captive for two and a half years.

Peter Moore, 36, a computer specialist, was abducted with four bodyguards at the Ministry of Finance in Baghdad in May 2007 and was released earlier this week.

Mr Moore's return home was kept secret following a request for privacy from his family.

Three of his bodyguards are dead. The other is also thought to have been killed.
