Baghdad (AP) The Iraqi military says a British journalist kidnapped two months ago in the southern city of Basra has been rescued.

An Iraqi commander says the journalist was rescued and a group of kidnappers were captured in an afternoon raid.

CBS has said the journalist worked for the television network but has not otherwise identified him.

The journalist and his Iraqi interpreter were kidnapped in mid-February in Basra. The interpreter was later released.
