Tonight, the latest details on the successful hostage rescue in Baghdad. Three Christian peace activists are safe in the Green Zone after being freed from captivity by British and U.S. special forces. They were found tied up in a house in Western Baghdad.Two weeks earlier their American colleague Tom Fox was killed by his captors. Richard Engel reports for us tonight. Also, we continue our series "The Iraq War: Three Years Later." Mike Boettcher has been embedded with the 4th Infantry Division on a mission to hunt down insurgents. He talks to the troops about fighting an elusive enemy, and more generally about morale and how they feel about the debate over the war that is raging here at home.
Also... given how many Americans have died trying to liberate Afghanistan... a story that is shocking to a lot of people. Muslim clerics are demanding that an Afghan man who converted from Islam to Christianity be put to death. Top U.S. officials are trying to intervene with the man's trial now underway. John Seigenthaler will have more for us tonight.
And... Baton Rouge, Louisiana, sure has changed since Hurricane Katrina. The city's population has exploded in the last seven months... an additional 150,000 people. That has led to a housing boom and new construction is up, but it has also created traffic headaches and placed a burden on schools and hospitals. Now Baton Rouge is looking to the federal government for some help with its growing pains. Rehema Ellis has more.
Also... the booming business of document forgery, and a man making a difference in Africa. See you tonight.
