Ontario Peace Activist Missing In Iraq

Here is an article that talks briefly about members of a faith-based peace and justice organization who are being held by a resistance group in Iraq. In particular, the write-up links to more detailed material which focuses on Jim Loney, his work in documenting prisoner abuse in Iraq, and his opposition to the occupation. I post this link because, though I do not know him well and have not seen him in years, I met Jim several times in the course of peace and social justice work in Hamilton, Ontario. It shouldn't, I know, but for some reason that makes it even more disturbing than hearing that it had happened to a random stranger.
