Update on Kidnapped Fox News Journalists

We haven’t heard much about kidnapped Fox News journalists Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, but TVNewser spotted this update from Shep Smith late last night that seems to indicate that they’re doing ok:

Olaf Wiig, a freelance photographer who has worked for Fox News for sometime, and our national correspondent, Steve Centanni, as many of our viewers know, both taken in Gaza by armed, hooded gunmen, a number of days ago. Actually on monday. There’s been no official word on their condition, though there have been calls throughout the Arab world for their release. We have kept the information to just the facts as we know them for reasons which I’m sure are clear to our viewers. Most often when journalists are captured within Gaza, they are returned within 24, 48 hours. That has not the case here, though there are indications of some kind that this may in fact resolve itself. And we have been led to believe now that Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig have not been harmed in any way. It’s our hope that we’ll all be seeing them again very soon, Greta.”

Let’s all hope that’s the case.
