New York Times thanks IrishCentral on reporter-kidnap story

Freed New York Times reporter Stephen Farrell

Farrell's rescue came about 11 weeks after David Rohde, another reporter for The Times, escaped and made his way to freedom after more than seven months of captivity in the mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

In that case as well, The Times and other news organizations kept Rohde’s kidnapping silent out of fear for his safety.
