Hostage crisis: Direct contact with abductors brings hope
August 06, 2004 15:48 IST
Reports of a direct contact between the abductors of three Indian drivers and a negotiator on Friday raised hopes of an early resolution of the Iraq hostage crisis.
Ram Dass, Antaryami's uncle, said there was "no official communication" on the latest developments.
With the abduction drama stretching over a fortnight now, the stress has begun to tell on the hostages' families. Antaryami's mother, Bhago Devi, and his wife, Kusum, are both bed-ridden now.
"Every visitor is looked upon with hope. We don't know who will bring us the good news," Ram Dass said.
Now, what everybody is awaiting is the "good news."
