BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) _ Three Romanian journalists who were held hostage in Iraq for nearly two months arrived home aboard a military plane Monday, a day after their release.

Television reporter Marie Jeanne Ion and cameraman Sorin Miscoci, both of Prima TV, and Ovidiu Ohanesian, a reporter from the daily newspaper Romania Libera, were kidnapped in Baghdad on March 28 with their guide, American-Iraqi Mohammed Monaf.

The four were freed Sunday, and then flew Monday to Romania, where they were greeted by President Traian Basescu and hundreds of journalists and friends.
