 Japanese reporter tricks his kidnapers into letting him tweet home
Japanese reporter tricks his kidnapers into letting him tweet home
Kosuke Tsuneoka had been held prisoner by the Afghan insurgent group Hizb-e-Islami for five months when he was finally released. The story of his horrendous ordeal is incredible. Even more so is the story of how he secretly used an insurgent’s phone to send out a tweet telling his family he was still alive. picked by palmieres 1 year ago

"This is the second time he has been kidnapped following an abduction in 2001 while in the field in Georgia."

I don't know if he's lucky or unlucky, the second time getting kidnapped? Damn

Well, abducted two times, he's an unlucky one but alive and escaped two times, he's damn lucky!
