Exhaustion and joy for freed Australian

After nearly 15 months being held captive by suspected Islamic militants in the southern Philippines, Warren Rodwell is emaciated, exhausted but delighted to be free at last.

Philippine authorities found Rodwell, a 54-year-old Australian, early Saturday in the port city of Pagadian on the island of Mindanao.

    Islamists are fed so well in Guantanamo Bay - They have access to all kinds of conveniences. This poor 54-year old man was emaciated. Islamists starved him - Islamists have no regard for basic human decency.
