U.S. POW rescued

Jessica Lynch, a 19-year-old Army private from Palestine, West Va., was rescued Tuesday, Army Brig. Gen. Vincent Brooks told reporters at U.S. Central Command field headquarters in Doha, Qatar.

"The soldier has been returned to a coalition controlled area," Brooks said in a brief statement.

Lynch had been missing in action since March 23, when members of the 507th Maintenance Company were attacked by Iraqi forces in Nasiriyah. Seven other members of the unit are known to have been captured.

She reportedly was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
