Indonesia: Kidnapped Briton Malcolm Primrose reunited with family


A 61-year-old British man working at an oil company in Indonesia has been returned with his family, two days after being abducted by gunmen.

Malcolm Primrose was found walking alone in a palm oil plantation only 50 meters from where he had been kidnapped in Aceh province.

His employers Medco E&P expressed their "deepest gratitude" to the local authorities, who have launched a hunt for his captors.

Mr Primrose told reporters he was feeling fine, but in need of a "mandi" - an Indonesian bath.
