LONDON — A British tourist seized by Somali raiders from a secluded, upmarket resort on the Kenyan coast more than six months ago in an attack that claimed her husband’s life was set free on Wednesday, ending a gripping drama that had helped fuel Kenya’s rationale for invading southern Somalia.
Judith Tebbutt, the 56-year-old captive, praised the efforts of her son, Oliver, in getting her released in an interview with Britain’s ITV News that was broadcast hours after British officials confirmed that she had been set free, apparently unharmed.
“I’m looking forward to seeing my son, who successfully secured my release,” she said. “I don’t know how he did it, but he did.”
Mrs. Tebbutt was shown wearing a purple head scarf in a blue-walled room with what appeared to be a clothes stand in the background. The precise location of the interview in Somalia was not disclosed.
British officials declined to go into detail about the circumstances of her release. “Our priority now is to get her to a place of safety,” the Foreign Office in London said in a statement. Officials said she was on her way to Kenya from Somalia.
Somalis with knowledge of Mrs. Tebbutt’s release and British news reports said that her family had met ransom demands to secure her release. British officials declined to comment. As a matter of public policy, the British government does not condone the payment of ransom or other inducements to hostage-takers.
Mrs. Tebbutt’s abduction was one of several kidnappings by Somali gunmen in Kenya last year that Kenyan officials initially cited as justification for sending troops into Somalia on Oct. 16, arguing that Kenya had to defend its tourism industry.  
But, soon afterward, the Kenyan government disclosed that the foray was planned much earlier, part of a covert strategy to penetrate Somalia and keep the violence in one of Africa’s most anarchic countries from spilling into one of Africa’s most stable. 
“I’m really happy,” Mrs. Tebbutt told ITV. “It’s just nice to be around other people. It’s been quite lonely. Seven months is a long time and under the circumstances, with my husband passing away, made it harder.”
“There were some very hard psychological moments,” she said, “but I got through it. So I’m really relieved.”
“I was moved around a bit from house to house. That started when there was some Navy SEALs successfully captured two aid workers. I think it was on the news,” she said, apparently referring to events in January when a team of about two dozen Navy SEALs rescued two other hostages — an American aid worker and her Danish colleague — held by Somali pirates since October.
“That night I was woken up and was moved around,” Mrs. Tebbutt said. “It was very disorientating. To be woken in the middle of the night and moved, and you’d stay there for a little while and then you’d move again.”
Gunmen seized Mrs. Tebbutt, and killed her husband, David Tebbutt, 58, at the $430 per night Kiwayu Safari Lodge in September in one of a series of attacks at coastal resorts near the town of Lamu, one of Kenya’s best-known tourist destinations.
The couple were the only guests at the resort and had arrived from the Masai Mara game reserve.
Mrs. Tebbutt was abducted in the middle of the night after a speedboat packed with Somali gunmen sped up to the resort, a string of 18 luxury cottages just south of the Somali border. They burst into the bungalow occupied by the British couple and fled with Mrs. Tebbutt.
Her husband was believed to have been killed when he tried to resist the attackers.
Western officials said at the time that she had been abducted by a pirate gang that was holding her deep within Somalia.
The raid was particularly alarming for both Kenyan officials and overseas visitors since it seemed to open an ominous new chapter in a saga of piracy in recent years, during which gunmen have hijacked dozens of ships and ransomed them for millions of dollars.
Worries about pirate attacks on land deepened in October when, three weeks after Mrs. Tebbutt was taken, Somali gunmen staged another brazen attack, snatching a handicapped French tourist from a beachside bungalow on Manda Island near Lamu and escaping to Somalia. The woman was later reported to have died in captivity.
Asked whether a ransom had been paid for Mrs. Tebbutt’s release, a spokesman for Prime Minister David Cameron said, “Our position is that we do not pay ransoms and we do not facilitate concessions to hostage-takers.”
The spokesman said Mrs. Tebbutt’s case had been discussed about 20 times at the government’s emergency committee, known as Cobra. The spokesman, speaking in return for anonymity under departmental rules, declined to comment on whether the British authorities had advised Mrs. Tebbutt’s family not to pay a ransom.
“All I can say is that we have been in close contact throughout,” he told the Press Association news agency. “We have obviously been providing support to the family and been in close contact with the family throughout and have been meeting regularly to discuss the case.”
Mrs. Tebbutt’s release was broadly welcomed by lawmakers, friends and others including a British couple, Paul and Rachel Chandler, who spent 388 days in captivity after being abducted at gunpoint aboard their 38-foot yacht near the Seychelles in October 2009.
“I hope she will have an opportunity to pick up the pieces of her life, and deal with the loss she has had,” Mr. Chandler told the BBC.
Somali pirates have yet to release captives including an American taken hostage in January and two Spanish aid workers abducted in Kenya, news reports said.
Other hostages include a French military adviser and scores of mariners from several countries taken prisoner when their vessels were hijacked at sea.
Rick Blears, a spokesman for an advocacy group supporting kidnapped seafarers, Save Our Seafarers, said that Mrs. Tebbutt’s release, while welcome, had shown that “the media spotlight is firmly on kidnapped civilians rather than any of the 233 working seafarers who are currently in captivity and have been so many months.”
“Many of them are kept in appalling conditions while slow ransom negotiations with shipping insurers take place,” Mr. Blears said. “Many of their families are just far too poor to pay any kind of ransom.”
“We also firmly believe that any move at government level to ban the payment of ransoms to pirates, as U.S. Secretary Hilary Clinton proposes, would have a massively detrimental effect and put the lives of hostages at grave risk,” he said. via NYT

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
