What great news, after 15 months Amanda Lindhout is freed!
Regular readers of On Deadline know we have been following her ordeal closely and as delicately as possible. We have posted our thoughts and support for efforts for her release and during that time it has brought us into contact with some interesting people who know Amanda and have worked with her before.
A more detailed posting by us is to follow. As we have before, we will respect the wishes of Lindhout’s parents who asked that media refrain from further reports until Lindhout and her colleague Nigel Brennan, are safely out of Somali.
