U.S. military releases Iraqis
An Iraqi man embraces his relative before he was released by the U.S. military at a mosque in Baghdad.
Thousands of Iraqis held without charge by the U.S. on suspicion of links to insurgents or militants are being freed by this summer because there is little or no evidence against them.
Their release comes as the U.S. prepares to turn over its detention system to the fledgling Iraqi government by early 2010.
