The body of American peace activist Tom Fox was discovered by police in Western Baghdad. Fox, 54, was a member of Christian Peacekeeper Teams. He and three other members of the organization were abducted by a group called the Swords of Righteousness Brigade in November 2005. The group released videos of the hostages and threatened to kill them unless demands were met. Initial reports said Fox had been shot in the head and chest.
