American Hostage Rescued in Iraq (and it's a child!)

The terrorists have resorted to holding children hostage. This is the only information I could gather about Hussein al Saadi. How many more American hostages are there in Iraq? From the AP:

US citizen Hussein al-Saadi, 10, who was kidnapped for a ransom of 150,000 US dollars two weeks ago, is kissed by his father Saadi Abdul-Aziz as they are reunited in the southern town of Basra in Iraq Monday, Feb. 28, 2005, after he was rescued by the Iraqi police who raided the kidnapper's hideout.

1 I must admit I'm a little confused about this. Is the child really an American. Do people working in Iraq take their children with them? Or do they just visit for a vacation. At least hes safe though, thats the main thing.

3 I have no idea why he was there. From the looks of him/his father and his name it is a good bet that he is an Iraqi-American---probably went back to Iraq after liberation.
