Nigel Brennan

Key Points

  • In 2008, two freelancers, Australian photojournalist Nigel Brennan and Canadian journalist Amanda Lindhout, travelled to Somalia to cover the story of the millions of people affected for nearly 20 years by war, drought and famine.
  • Unfortunately, Nigel and Amanda became the story. Four days after arriving in the Somalian capital Nigel and Amanda were ambushed and kidnapped by teenage criminals. They were held for the next 462 days before being finally released on the 26th November 2009.
  • Held in isolation, mostly in a room 3 x 5 meters, and often in the dark, Nigel suffered both mental and physical torture at the hands of his captors.
  • Nigel's story is highly engaging and emotional. His account of being captured, held hostage, a near escape, and eventual release, provide a fascinating insight into human strength and personal determination to stay alive.
