In this Friday July 4, 2014 photo, Turkish truck driver Ozgur Simsek, 20, left, smiles at the camera as he and other captives are released by militants from the Islamic State group. The captive drivers, who are being ferried across the Iraqi desert in pickup trucks before being dropped off to walk the rest of the way to Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq, spent more than three weeks as hostages of Islamic State. The ordeal ended without violence or a physical ransom, according to an account of the kidnapping pieced together by The Associated Press. The episode paints a picture of a militant group unusually careful not to anger Turkey's government - and offers insight into the mysterious release of 49 Turkish hostages just over a week ago.
