  Ken Bigley is alive, says brother
Updated 27 September 2004, 07.52

Kenneth Bigley
The British man Ken Bigley, who is being held hostage in Iraq, is still alive according to his brother.

Paul Bigley said he had sources that told him Ken was still alive, although the government have said they don't have a way to prove if that is right.

The people who have taken Ken Bigley have asked for all women prisoners in Iraq to be released from jail.

They are being held in a US prison in Iraq and the US military doesn't want to let them out.

Iraq
Paul Bigley wants the UK government to do more to help his brother's release, but the prime minister has said he is doing all he can.

Mr Bigley said he had been told an Iraqi judge had decided two women prisoners should be released but the US president had prevented it happening.

He wants Mr Blair to ask US president George Bush to let the women be freed.
