Ex-NBC correspondent breathes ‘huge sigh of relief’ as two American relatives are released by Hamas

Former Israel-based NBC News correspondent Martin Fletcher reacted to the news Friday that two of his wife’s relatives who had been taken hostage by Hamas were released.

“My wife has been in touch with her family directly in Israel,” Fletcher said Friday on MSNBC. “And she’s been told that the hostages are now with the Red Cross in Israel. And that’s as much as we know.”

“Obviously a huge sigh of relief,” Fletcher later said, “and at the same time concerned that there’s so many more hostages. And the question being, is this the beginning of a prisoner swap of some kind?”
