CANBERRA, Australia - An Australian engineer who was rescued last week after being held for six weeks in Iraq is set to return to his home country tomorrow.

Doug Wood was freed by Iraqi and U.S. troops during a search of a
house in one of the most dangerous Sunni Arab neighborhoods of
Baghdad. And one of his brothers says Doug and his American wife are set to fly home tomorrow.

Wood also lives in California. And his brother says he doesn't
know how long he'll stay in Australia before returning to the U.S.
