On June 10th, 2009, Amanda Lindhout made a call to a CTV newsroom. Reading, what can only be perceived as a perpared statement by kidnappers, the weak and emotional sounding Lindhout pleaded with the Canadian government to help bring her home. She also said she fears she will die in captivity if Somalian kidnappers ransom demands are not met. There was no mention of fellow freelance journalists, Nigel Brennan.
