(Kuwait City-AP) -- The seven U-S POW's freed in Iraq Sunday have been released after medical examinations in Kuwait.
The seven had been flown to an undisclosed place in Kuwait within hours after marines recovered them south of Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit. An army nurse says three were examined for injuries; the other four were found to have no problems.
The soldiers had been held captive for 22 days. Earlier today, they got a delighted welcome at an air base in southern Iraq before they were flown to a military airport south of Kuwait city.
