OTTAWA (Reuters) - A Canadian journalist who was freed in Somalia after being kidnapped and spending more than a year in captivity said on Wednesday she had been tortured by her kidnappers.
Amanda Lindhout, a Canadian freelance reporter, and Nigel Brennan, a freelance Australian photojournalist, were seized in Mogadishu in August 2008.
“I was beaten and I was tortured. It was an extremely, extremely difficult situation,” Lindhout told CTV television in an interview from Mogadishu.
