Hurrah!!!! Alberta journalist and Australian photographer freed in Somalia after 15 months in prison

After 15 months of captivity in war-torn Somalia, Canadian journalist Amanda Lindhout and her companion Australian photographer Nigel Brennan have been freed. They have endured months of torture and isolation. What kept her sane was imagining she was somehwere sunny–she chose Stanley Park in Vancouver as her imaginary haven. Her captors demanded one million dollars for the pair’s release. There was no mention in the Canadian Press article whether her ransom was paid or by whom. We’re just thankful she and the photographer have been safely released.
