Jackson seeks the release of three U.S. soldiers  

They are healthy, in isolation, he tells CNN

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (CNN) -- Three captured U.S. servicemen are being held in isolation in Yugoslavia prison cells but are "physically very healthy," according to the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who was allowed to visit them on Friday.

Earlier in the day, Yugoslavia's foreign minister told Jackson the soldiers will not be freed until NATO bombing stops, sources familiar with the meeting told CNN.

Shortly after visiting the servicemen at a Belgrade prison, Jackson told CNN by telephone that he met with them individually and then as a group.

"Our visit was cut short," he said, when air raid sirens sounded, signaling the possibility of a NATO airstrike.
