Former hostage Golam Mostafa hugs the UN Hostage Support Programmes John Steed. Steed helped secure the release of the 11 men who were held hostage by Somali pirates for almost 4 years. They were rescued on June 7, 2014.
NAIROBI - Aman Kumar and the 10 other men, freed after almost four years of being held hostage by Somali pirates, went on a safari in Kenya before going home.
The open-topped car, fresh air and feeling of freedom were beyond exhilirating for Kumar.
Speaking to eNCA, he said: "Too happy. I feel too happy today. I can see animals, we are visiting with colleagues in the safari park. I never thought this day would come in my life. My heart still feels like I’m dreaming these things. I cannot believe (it)."
This view has been a long time coming for him.
