British Security Consultant Kidnapped in Somalia
A British security consultant contracted by U.K. charity Save the Children was kidnapped on the Somalian border with Ethiopia.
They were seized in the town of Adado, which is under the control of clan bosses. It is also used as a base by piracy kingpins whose gangs have netted tens of millions of dollars in ransoms from hijacking ships.
