Somalia: the world’s most notorious failed state, and one of the most dangerous places on earth.
It’s a land of pirates, criminal gangs and militant Islamists, which even the military might of the U.S.A. couldn’t tame. With no government for two decades, there can be few worse places to be taken hostage...
This is Sunday Telegraph foreign correspondent Colin Freeman’s account of being kidnapped on the lawless Somali pirate coast - and how it became a haven for modern-day buccaneers.
‘More than simply a Terrific book on the scourge of Somali piracy, Freeman’s wry style and heartfelt candour raises Kidnapped to the highest rank’
Tim Butcher, author of Blood River
‘A hair-raising account of life as a prisoner of Somalia’s 21st century buccaneers. Essential reading for anyone interested in the world’s most broken state, and why it became that way’
Oliver Poole, London Evening Standard
The Curse Of The Al Dulaimi Hotel
