Customs agents at Boston's Logan International Airport have returned the majority of items confiscated from a Boston Herald reporter.

On 19 April 2003, the reporter arrived at the airport after reporting on the war in Iraq. Customs agents reportedly seized 55 items from the man, including personal camping equipment, military equipment, a laptop computer and body armour owned by the Herald, as well as a 4-by-6-foot colour canvas of Saddam Hussein.

The major of the items have now been returned to the man, apart from the painting which customs valued at USD800, and some military gear, reported The Associated Press.
