Fox Journalists Said Unharmed

The kidnappers are in contact with the Hamas government. Shock.

Two Fox News journalists kidnapped by militants in Gaza have not been harmed, a Palestinian official said on Saturday, as a deadline expired for the United States to free Muslim prisoners in exchange for their release.

Interior Ministry spokesman Khaled Abu Hilal said information from "third parties" confirmed that Fox News correspondent Steve Centanni, a 60-year-old American, and New Zealand-born cameraman Olaf Wiig, 36, were in good health.

The previously unknown Holy Jihad Brigades claimed responsibility on Wednesday for the kidnapping and warned the United States to free Muslim prisoners or the captives would face unspecified consequences. The three-day deadline passed at midday (0900 GMT).

"Good efforts to free the two journalists are continuing," Hilal told Reuters.

"Things are still going in a positive manner and information confirms the two journalists are in good health and are unharmed."
