Head of American Hostage Found

Saudi officials say the head of slain American hostage Paul Johnson has been found in a raid on a militant hideout in the Saudi capital. The civilian contractor was kidnapped and beheaded by militants in Saudi Arabia last month.

In a statement aired on Saudi T-V, the government says the head was found in a freezer in an apartment. The statement says the rest of the body was not found.

Johnson's family had been pressing U-S and Saudi officials to do more to find his body. The 49-year-old Johnson had been working in Saudi Arabia for more than a decade.
