There have been two Telegram stories from the 10th and 11th, and one Daily Worcesteria item, about Christina Andrianopoulos’ kidnapping experience in Liberia.

New Dawn Liberia has reported on the story from a slightly different perspective it as well.

We’d also like to point readers to the full press release of the experience, that was issued on the 9th.  Andrianopoulos says on Facebook that she will tell her story when she returns to the US.

Update, 7:45 pm: A reader noted that a review of Andrianopoulos’ Facebook page raises more questions than answers.

If she had all her electronics and money taken, and was being held under a form of house arrest, it’s quite fortuitous that she was able to start using Facebook for iPhone on October 1:

And then post a link to a GoLocal Worcester article and a promo for an upcoming TV show:

Goodness knows if I were being held indefinitely in Liberia I’d start wishing for snow:

Womag update: Boyfriend of woman in Liberia: This is international crisis. “He says US government officials at all levels are working closely with their Liberian counterparts not just to secure the safe return of an American citizen, but on an international crisis that stretches to other countries.”

Update: additional Liberian news coverage: New Republic Liberia has some comments from Andrianopoulos; Front Page Africa online notes that she was unable to give written testimony in court yesterday.  The earliest African press coverage I’ve been able to find was on October 4, in what seems to be a press release from the Liberian Ministry of Justice.

Update: even more Liberian coverage: from October 10, October 11, and October 12

  1. Dear Nicole Apostola,
    I believe you are a fan of my father’s. I am now typing out Dad’s 200 or so WWII letters home from 1942 to 1945. Would you like to read them? It’s wonderful writing.

    If so, please send me your regular EMail address and I’ll send you a month at a time in attachments.

    Let me know,
    Martha Southwick
