Mrs. Tebbutt disclosed that she did not even realize her husband had been killed trying to fight off the kidnappers until two weeks after being taken hostage.

Mrs. Tebbutt, from Bishop’s Stortford, Herts, was freed after a ransom of $1.1 million which had been raised by her family, was airdropped to her kidnappers in the remote Adado region of central Somalia.
