Family Maintains Hope for Mobile Man
By Alabama Public Radio
Mobile, AL – A Mobile man who has been missing since an attack on a fuel convoy in Iraq was NOT among the three bodies identified yesterday by Halliburton. Timothy Bell's family members say they regret the deaths of the other men, but they remain hopeful that Bell is alive. Four bodies were recovered from the attack, which occurred west of Baghdad. U-S military officials say the fourth body was not an American. Seven Halliburton employees were missing after the attack on the convoy, along with two American soldiers. One of the employees and one soldier are now believed to be hostages because they've been seen on videotapes broadcast by foreign news networks.
