A retired British couple have been released by Somali pirates after being held captive for more than a year.
Paul, 60, and Rachel Chandler, 56, from Kent, were seized from their yacht off the Seychelles in October 2009.
Mrs Chandler said: "I'm enjoying being free". The couple said they were fine, but will undergo medical checks.
On release they were taken to Adado, then Mogadishu, and have now arrived in Kenya. The BBC held off reporting the release due to an injunction.
It observed the terms of the order obtained by the Chandlers' family which was intended to stop news organisations covering their release until they were safely out of Somalia.
Mr Chandler told the BBC: "We're fine, we're rather skinny and bony but we're fine."

Tell-Tales, this site will contain an eclectic mix to do
with things nautical, or nearly so, in the
Mediterranean. For sailing outside the Mediterranean stay here.
Eventually, but not just yet, the pages to do with sailing in the
Mediterranean will be removed from this site.
There will inevitably be some duplicaton between the two sites with pages that are relevant to sailing within and without the Mediterranean on both sites. These will all have the same page name so don't worry too much.
THE SITE ON SAILING IN THE MEDITERRANEAN IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND NEW PAGES AND ADDITIONAL INFO TO EXISTING PAGES WILL BE ADDED WHEN AND WHERE I CAN ...
FOR MORE INFO GO TO THE MEDITERRANEO SITE WHERE THERE WILL BE MORE RECENT ENTRIES AND ALSO ENTRIES FOR TURKEY AND GREECE. USE THE LINK ABOVE.
Sitting in an Istanbul cafe Ozan Tuzun taps away furiously on the keyboard of his laptop, trying to break the invisible walls that surround him.
"I'm going to DNS.com now to take one of their numbers...I enter it...no that didn't work. Right let's try to get a DNS from Google...no... ok we'll try Ktunnel..."
What Ozan is doing - and it takes him about 10 minutes - is
something most of us can do in just seconds.
