"An American teenager has emerged from the depths of jungle in the Philippines after a daring escape from his al-Qa'ida-linked captors involving a two-day, barefoot trek. Kevin Lunsmann's break for freedom came after five months as a prisoner of militants on an island off the southern Philippines. The group snatched the 14-year-old hostage with his mother and cousin while the three were on holiday on a tiny island." (12/12/11)
