Freed hostage Judith Tebbutt 'very courageous'

A friend of freed hostage Judith Tebbutt's husband, David, has paid tribute to her courage during six months' captivity in Somalia.

Mrs Tebbutt is being flown to Nairobi after a ransom was paid for her release. Her husband was killed when an armed gang attacked them at a resort on the Kenyan coast in September 2011.

Professor Iain Stevenson of University College, London, said it was likely ''a lot of people clubbed together'' to raise the ransom money.
