BAGHDAD, Feb 10 (Reuters) – The U.S. military released a Reuters photographer in Iraq on Wednesday after holding him for almost a year and a half without charge. 

“How can I describe my feelings? This is like being born again,” Ibrahim Jassam Mohammed said as he was greeted by his family. 

Jassam, an Iraqi who has contributed photographs and video to Reuters on a freelance basis, was detained in a raid by U.S. and Iraqi forces on his home in Mahmudiya town, south of Baghdad in September 2008. (Reporting by Suadad al-Salhy)
