A US contractor kidnapped last year in Iraq was rescued by US-led troops on Wednesday, a US military statement said.
"The coalition forces rescued American Roy Hallums and an Iraqi citizen from captivity in an isolated farm house located 25 km south of Baghdad," said the statement.
"Hallums is in good condition and is receiving medical care," the statement added.
Hallums, 57, was kidnapped from his office in Mansour district of Baghdad on Nov. 1, 2004 and had been held since then.
He worked for a Saudi Arabian company, supplying food to the Iraqi army before his abduction.
The identity of the freed Iraqi man was withheld pending notification of his family, the statement said.
