Another Team Arrives Safely in Amman
IPT update
1 April 03

Dear Friends,

Last night we received word that 13 members of our team in Baghdad would
be leaving Iraq. We woke up this morning to CNN reports that a convoy of
as many as 20 'human shields' leaving Iraq for Jordan were attacked by US
missiles. This brief note is to let you all know that the reports are false. The
story was first reported by Iraqi State radio and picked up by the BBC. At the
height of panic, a call came in from the Jordan border: our team was safe
and headed for Amman.

We have received many calls from people concerned for our team. We are
glad we can deliver good news. There is not a lot of that to go around these

More later,

Jeff Guntzel, for Voices in the Wilderness
