Knight Ridder reported Wednesday night:

Palestinian gunmen in the Gaza Strip kidnapped a Knight Ridder correspondent and a British photographer working with him Wednesday but surrendered them to Palestinian Authority security officials after almost six hours.

Dion Nissenbaum, Knight Ridder's Jerusalem bureau chief and a U.S. citizen, said neither he nor freelance photographer Adam Pletts was harmed.
