Somali pirates release British hostage

Somali pirates freed a British hostage Wednesday, nearly seven months after she was taken captive in a raid at a Kenyan beach resort in which her husband was killed.

Judith Tebbutt told British broadcaster ITN that she was "very relieved" and was looking forward to seeing her son, who, she said, had helped secure her release.

"I don't know how he did it," she said.

    While I am very glad she was released, my heart goes out to her for the loss of her husband.
    I hope she can heal properly after her ordeal.
    Sending prayers her way.
