Freelance journalist Amanda Lindhout is back in her native Alberta, two weeks after her 15-month kidnapping ordeal ended in Somalia, reports the Globe and Mail. She arrived in Calgary on December 9 after a stopover in Eastern Canada, and was met there by her parents.
Australian photographer Nigel Brennan, who was kidnapped and held alongside Lindhout, landed in Sydney hours before Lindhout’s homecoming. Upon his arrival he read from a prepared statement which concluded with thanks to Lindhout.
