In the recent report from BBC, a hosted from UK named Peter Moore has been released alive from captivity in Iraq, Foreign Secretary David Miliband said.

The bodies of Jason Swindlehurst, from Skelmersdale, Lancashire, and Jason Creswell, of Glasgow, were returned to the UK in June 2009, followed by that of Alec MacLachlan, of Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, in September.

Mr Miliband said the Moore family felt deep relief after two-and-a-half years of “misery, fear and uncertainty”.

Four bodyguards were seized with Mr Moore. Three were shot dead; the fourth is also thought to have been killed.

Mr Miliband has called for the release of the body of the fourth guard – Alan McMenemy from Glasgow.

Mr Miliband said Mr Moore, who had been released on Wednesday morning, was in the British Embassy in Baghdad and would be reunited with his family as soon as possible
