Pray for the British man, Kenneth Bigley.. what have we got to lose? He's a contractor/engineer for God's sake, he's not even a soldier! If you pray, just please remember this poor fellow who has a family and wants to come home. He's someone's beloved dad, brother, uncle, son.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Two female Italian hostages seized in Baghdad three weeks ago were freed on Tuesday along with kidnapped Iraqis and Egyptians in a flurry of releases, but an abducted Briton remained under threat of death.

An Arab television report said two French journalists were also close to being freed, but the French government declined to comment.

The two freed Italian aid workers, Simona Pari and Simona Torretta, were safe and well, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said. They and two Iraqi colleagues seized with them had been freed after "difficult" negotiations, he said.

News of their release sparked scenes of joy across Italy, and Italian television showed live pictures of the jet carrying the two Simonas, as they are affectionately known in Italy, touch down at Ciampino airport at 11:15 p.m. (5:15 p.m. EDT).

"We are well," the two told reporters before they were taken away for questioning by anti-terror magistrates looking into their kidnapping.

Within minutes of their release, an Egyptian telephone company said four of six of its engineers snatched last week had also been set free.

But the fate of British hostage, engineer Kenneth Bigley, who was seized 12 days ago and has been threatened with beheading, remained unclear.

Pari and Torretta, both aged 29, were taken at gunpoint from their central Baghdad offices on Sept. 7 in a brazen kidnapping that jolted the thousands of foreigners working in Iraq .

"This is an extraordinary moment of joy," said Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini, who thanked Arab and Islamic leaders for helping Rome during the crisis.

Still keep your fingers crossed and prayers going strong for this man!

We're Rooting for you, Kenneth!!
