Kidnapped tourist returns to Kenya

Woman kidnapped from Kenyan resort released unharmed

A 56-year-old woman kidnapped last September from a resort island on the Kenyan coast has been released unharmed, reportedly after a ransom was paid by her relatives. Judith Tebbutt, from the UK, told the television channel ITV News: “I’m really happy. It’s just nice to be around other people, it’s been quiet and lonely for seven months.” She was flown to Nairobi on her release.
In September 2011, she was taken from the Kiwayu Safari Village, close to the border with Somalia. The gang who took her killed her 58-year-old husband. They were the only guests there at the time.
