Missing in Somalia - Amanda Lindhout

I was shocked and saddened to learn that a former colleague, Amanda Lindhout and at least three other companions had been abducted by armed men in Somalia on Saturday morning.

According to sources, 48-hours after the kidnapping there has been no public announcement of responsibility, or demands - either political or financial.

While it is believed Amanda and her companions are being held in Mogadishu, there has been no reliable indication of which group is behind the kidnapping, or what their motive may be.

Please show your support for the hostages, and indeed the plight of the Somali people by signing up to Facebook and adding your name to Voice for Amanda Lindhout.
