[06.05 GMT] SILENCE IN IRAQ: (BBC) Friends and family of Norman Kember have endured an agonising wait for news. Chris Cole, director of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, of which the pensioner is a trustee, said: "We are looking for a miracle at this stage." Bruce Kent, a friend of Mr Kember for 15 years, said: "I haven't given up hope at all. They may be working on some way of getting off the hook without losing face.It's quite possible they may be preparing a video to say why they are releasing them."
