The Polish Ambassador to Kuwait, Voycheck Bozil, called
the Operations Center on April 7 at 1810 to request USG
assistance in locating two Polish journalists who were
apparently captured within an area approximately 100 km.
from Al-Hilla, or Hilla, Iraq. Ambassador Bozik said the
journalists rented a car from Kuwait, and claimed that
they had received permission from the US military to
enter Iraq. His sources also claimed that one of the
journalists escaped from his captors on April 7 at 2:30
