Amanda Lindhout still hostage in Somalia

I hadn’t heard much about Amanda Lindhout‘s kidnapping recently (wikipedia). She’s been held hostage for more than a year in Somalia without adequate food, water, or medicine. There’ve been unconfirmed accounts of rape and of her having given birth to a Somali child as a result of rape. Her captors have released statements that she is “very contented with her marriage relationship with one of her captors.” I cannot imagine the hell she is living through. I hope for her safe and speedy return to freedom.
