CBC News reporter released by Afhgan captors

CBC journalist Mellissa Fung was released into the custody of Canadian officials in Kabul on Saturday, four weeks after she was abducted.

Fung was taken by armed men who approached her in a refugee camp on the outskirts of Kabul on Oct. 12. The journalist, who was stationed at the NATO military base in Kandahar but was visiting the Kabul-area camp to report on a story, was then taken to the mountains west of the Afghan capital.

As news of her release emerged on Saturday, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported that she was in good health and undergoing a medical examination.

News of the abduction had been kept secret over concerns about her safety.

“In the interest of Mellissa’s safety and that of other working journalists in the region, on the advice of security experts, we made the decision to ask media colleagues not to publish news of her abduction,” CBC News publisher John Cruickshank said. “All of the efforts made by the security experts were focused on Mellissa’s safe and timely release.”

“Fung’s family was in daily contact with the team at CBC that was trying to negotiate this and help this go forward to the successful conclusion,” said CBC journalist Susan Ormiston, who has also filed stories from Afghanistan.

Ormiston said several other reporters have gone into the same camp where Fung was taken. Fung was visiting the camp for internally displaced people to report on refugees who have streamed back into Afghanistan from Pakistan and Iran.

“It’s a difficult situation. It’s a management of risk all the time, and it’s something that we journalists do on a regular basis,” she said.

Fung herself first alerted authorities about her kidnapping on her portable phone. Her captors were not Taliban militants, she said, but unaffiliated bandits.

Adam Khan Serat, spokesman for the provincial governor in Afghanistan’s Wardak province, said the journalist was freed after tribal elders and provincial council members negotiated her release.

“I cannot offer any detail about how the negotiations were managed in any respect,” Cruickshank said. “We can’t discuss any demands or promises made to secure her release, except to say it is the policy of the CBC not to pay ransom, and we followed that policy to the letter.”

“She sounded terrific, and she said she hadn’t been harmed in any way,” CBC president Hubert Lacroix said. “She said she was sorry for all the trouble she caused.”

Harper thanks Afghan government

Prime Minister Stephen Harper told reporters that no ransom was paid. He also thanked all those who “worked so tirelessly” to help win Fung’s release, singling out Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

“I spoke with President Karzai immediately following her kidnapping, and he assured me of the full co-operation and engagement of his government, and he has delivered,” Harper said.

“This is wonderful news for her family, for her colleagues and for all Canadians,” the prime minister said.

Lacroix thanked Canadian and Afghan government officials, as well as dozens of media organizations in Canada and around the world that agreed not to publicize the abduction during the reporter’s month-long ordeal.

“Mellissa is now safe and in reasonable health, given the more than four weeks [she spent] in these difficult circumstances,” he said at a news conference Saturday afternoon.

“She is being examined by Canadian medical staff in Kabul and soon she will be flying to another location in the Middle East in preparation for her return to Canada.

“Plans are being made to reunite Mellissa with her family as soon as possible,” he added.

Lacroix said employees at the public broadcaster prepare “rigorously” for the possibility that a journalist may be abducted in a conflict zone, but no amount of planning or training could prepare them for the feeling of “hopelessness, anger and dread” they felt after hearing about Fung’s abduction.

  1. 癹生咩事?做咩突然多咗篇雞腸嘢起度?分明洽我阿塵呢d雞腸盲啫!最憎雞腸!篇嘢又長d字又細,搞到我瞇起眼睇!姓fung?馮?馮肉蘭d老鄉?係華裔女子喎,乜唔覺眼d本地嘅華文報章有報導嘅?佢地唔係最鐘意唔理三七廿一,咩芝麻綠豆狗屎垃圾,總之係華人新聞就大報特報,乜呢單嘢成個華女比d拉登笠咗去,又完全唔聽有人提?佢係邊暑人呀,睇黎都唔係多倫多!
    乜都好,番咗屋企就好啦,拉登果d地方,邊係人去架,番屋企檻檻個火盤,搵d碌柚葉洗身,租番套’珠光寶氣’睇,唔好四圍跑喇!

  2. 嘻,嘻!剛啱睇完生果報,十九才子今日篇嘢寫得好抵死!好睇!本來應該鋪屎落下面奧巴馬果欄,我知,不過見下面咁擠擁,呢度又空盪盪,所以貼上黎!李家豪唔好斬我!

    奧巴馬學中文 (陶傑)

     奧巴馬上台,沒有蜜月期,美國人都等 奧巴馬治理交貨。
     交不了貨,怎麼辦?不怕,特區政府十年,為奧巴馬提供了如何靠兩張嘴皮吹水,然後兩手一攤什麼也做不了的卸責理由。

     第一招是「大」:黑人當家作主,吐氣揚眉。要先提出幾張遠大的「藍圖」,例如,把美國建成全球「社會和諧基地」、「世界文明中心」、「全球移民樞紐」、成立四五十個委員會,吸納各界親美,慢慢研究怎樣「落實」各項「遠景」。

     奧巴馬去非洲肯雅回鄉祭祖之後,回到華盛頓,不妨推行非洲肯雅史瓦希里語的「母語 學」,英非雙語並重,體現非洲幾千萬黑人翻身作主的尊嚴。

     改朝換代,黑人做了總統,華盛頓那座「白宮」,還「白」什麼?為了「政治正確」,即刻拆卸,改建一座八十層玻璃幕牆的政府辦公大樓,並改名「黑宮」,如果美國白人不服,則另行成立一個「白宮改名諮詢委員會」,再次吸納精英,慢慢諮詢。

     第二招是「拖」:告訴全國,黑人做了總統,歷史上並無先例,是一項新生事物,艱巨挑戰,香港的副局長一樣,缺乏經驗,要慢慢「磨合」,慢慢「摸索」,像特區前董領導人說的,只要經一塹,長一智,跌倒了,爬起來,邊做邊學,集思廣益,今天完蛋,明天一定會更好。

     第三招是「賴」:前朝布殊,留下一個爛攤子呀,前前朝列根,埋下了無數地雷呀,財政部、CIA、國防部,都還有一批「布殊餘孽」,把我奧巴馬暗中架空、抵制、拒不合作,你叫我怎麼幹呀。
    還有,一場金融海嘯,全球「外圍環境惡化」,連北極也在融冰,美國不可以「獨善其身」呀。美國的境外敵對勢力很多:俄國、中國、拉登、銀河系的外星人,他們嫉妒眼紅美國實力強大,正在全力圍堵我們哪。大家要團結,鎗口一致對外,找找國內有沒有這些敵人的代理人,天天在唱衰,例如退了休還在指手劃腳的布殊,例如輸而不服的麥堅、老妖婆珮琳,把他們揪出來,大家一起向他們吐口水、撒尿呀。

     奧巴馬交不了貨,可以借鏡遠東香港特區的中國式卸責經驗,奧巴馬的弟弟在深圳開吧,據說精通華文,還看得懂《紅樓夢》呢。奧弟最近潛回美國,也許會 奧巴馬學中文。讀《紅樓夢》,沒有用的,學會這三個字:大(Da)、拖(Tuo)賴(Lai),即可。最後撐不下去了,再補一句:「我腳痛」。

    (2008,11月9,蘋果日報)

  3. 19 才子看來已經江郎才盡,只懂找一些熱門政治人物抽水來混飯食,可悲!

  4. 真係呀!一見雞腸,對老花眼又開唔到,睇到幅相係個華人女仔,咁後生,咁熱血去做戰地記者,打到粒粒亂,由你啦!自由民主呀嘛,唔怕呀,講英文啦,對住的磅匪講英文,講自由民主平等人權啦,有排你同加拿大國防局問話呀!相信佢地好想知道好多嘢,有排唔得閒呀!
    李家豪唔斬你,我都"苖"吓你啦!咁鍾意油臘傑,係唔係都隊哂上嚟,服你咯!咁大嗰人,鍾意就金屋床傑,收埋嚟吟玩啦;呢度好多人對佢無咩好感,包括埋我!真係呀,訪問你卓人嗰個youtube 短片,見佢比人請食蕉,嗰個不知應對,發爛炸又收反嗰個情況真係,真係慘不忍睹!你次次都登哂上嚟,比返的廣告費人地一本政經做營運呀!做人先至有的良心呀!

  5. It seemed odd when Mellissa Fung was suddenly not reporting around October 12 for CBC. I thought then she has on her vacation leave.

    I salute CBC, Canadian Government and Afghan Government for their joint efforts for her safe return.

    Mellissa is a very brave journalist.

  6. 陶傑才氣橫溢,全香港寫諷刺時敝文章,無出其右,招人嫉妒。

  7. CBC華裔記者梅利莎•馮 (Mellissa Fung﹐譯音) 在阿富汗被綁架28天獲釋﹐總理哈珀周六在緊急記者會宣布﹐她現時安全情況良好﹐感謝傳媒保密﹐強調當局未付贖金。

  8. 19才子嘅ATV雙對論蜜月期仲短, 唔夠一星期, 佢得一蕉 – 「賴」.

  10. 19才子係抽水真空泵, 呢輪一直抽毓民水, 而家又抽奧巴馬水.

  11. 乖,唔好喊喇,快啲收聲啦,奧巴馬總統卒之都同胡主席通電話啦,遲咗啲咁多啫,話咗叫你唔好咁心急咯。吓!乜話?全靠你喊到咁大聲先至有得通電話?哦,都係你叻啲囉…

  12. 19菜籽又蝦轆搞錯. 「白宮」應該改名「灰宮」, 因為奧巴馬係 50%黑 + 50%白.

  13. 重型自悲感的人係好似一個老姑婆, 成日囉囉攣驚冇人向佢放電.

  14. 關注西藏問題而多次在公開場合示威的港大女生陳巧文,指本年5月奧運聖火在港傳遞期間,本欲舉行和平示威,但被在場的警員阻止展示「雪山獅子旗」及示威標語,更被警方以「人身安全」為由襲擊,最後被強行抬上警車。陳指警方行為阻止她行使《基本法》賦予的言論、示威等權利,日前向高院申請司法覆核,並要求賠償。

  15. CBC is very hush-hush about the release of Mellissa Fung. Nothing significant has been disclosed to date. It is just a movie, but everything is real.

  16. 胡主席唔知有冇邀請奧巴馬訪問偉大祖國,順便到一到香港打個白鴿轉,還超級擦鞋曾一個心願,費事浮雲曾得閒無事又打電話去煩住奧巴馬,人地識你浮雲曾係老鼠咩?仲以為自己係國際大都會嘅名人,唔該胡温快d罵醒呢個傻仔!無謂等佢經常鬧出國際大笑話啦,同時又映衰埋d特區香港人。

  17. 信心膨脹同埋冇大冇細嘅浮雲曾有可能已經邀請過, 但係被奧巴馬請食檸檬.

  18. 啱啱去完飛髪舖,$8單剪,再睇定的有無平過呢間,先至幫襯!
    我係飛髪舖睇到報紙,話巴馬打電話比胡錦;呢度有個叻唔切呱呱叫,仲叫人靜吓,唔係有電話囉!
    唉!傻架!星期六晚通電http://www.mingpaotor.com/htm/News/20081109/ttaa1.htm
    即係美國時間星期六早上啦!唉!星期二晚當選,星期六先至回電話;其間三四五三日時間用嚟選人開會,呢的電話接唔接都罷就啦!
    巴馬回電話比中國領導人,你估真係穌你呀!唔好忘記一樣嘢,就係錢呀!中國領導人將會出席細怖薯十一月係美國度水會議呀,細怖話知你呀,中國話齌,攪掂自己屋企,唔使累街坊,已經係中國對世界金融危機最負責任的做法!咁又係呀!十三億人口,比美國佬攪到世界立立亂,無啖好食,顧住自己人唔使去乞米,已經係好負責行為!
    細怖薯,哼哼!話知你,中國唔開倉借糧仲好,呢個炸彈,留番比你隻白宫灰狗好黑狗好白狗好去玩,佢好少理!無實質結果仲好!
    巴馬同的財經佬開完會,要度水要籌旗,揾邊嗰好?係人都知要揾中國啦!所以呢個電話遲到好過無到!事關明知細怖散吓散吓唔在乎,佢巴馬無理由美國佬主持開會嗰一日一齊同細怖薯出席,佢都未過門,點算係美國總統呢?
    所以呢個電話係一條救命線,係一個比自己解決財困一個電話;所以報紙佬強調一樣嘢:
    “奧巴馬表示,解決當前金融危機需要各國政府更加緊密合作,希望美中兩國在即將召開的金融市場和世界經濟峰會上加強合作。"
    總言之,呢個電話係度水電話,係一個利害電話,唔係表示友善電話!不過,飛髪舖嗰份報紙好似唔係報紙明架,下面好似話美國係太平洋的戰艦有好多對住中國之類,睇兩眼大字就走人,早知啦!

  19. "拮"反你條友,明正言順,唔似你陰吓陰吓咁講嘢!

    巴馬呢嗰電話唔係咩嘢回謝中國領導人祝賀電話;順勢度水,留有一線,路人皆知啦!仲衰嗰唔回呀!點解!度水先至記得你,呢的關係要唔要都罷!事關的美國的財經佬同巴馬諗來諗去,條水魚唯一係中國呢條錦鯉,唔鯤去鯤邊條呀!
    中國操控滙率!嘩!我係領導人,一早就翻枱啦!好彩,我唔係,係比人話係周身屎的白痴佬!

  20. 好似禮拜四光明頂係講呢啲嘢,都幾好笑。自由黨選黨魁唔好搞門檻,因為Gerard Kennedy一上到黨魁,贏大選嘅機會非常高,自由黨敢唔敢搏?

  21. 梅利莎•馮(Mellissa Fung),任職加拿大廣播公司(CBC),她上月12日在阿富汗首都喀布爾採訪難民時遭綁架。馮氏被擄後,其他駐阿富汗的加拿大記者很快獲悉事件,但加 國傳媒應當局要求,一直封鎖消息。當地長老及政府官員與綁匪談判,馮小姐最後獲釋,阿富汗情報人員更拘捕了3名疑匪。

    在周日發布的片段中, 剛獲救的馮氏跟加拿大駐阿富汗大使見面時說﹕「我很好,我真的很好。」當大使擁抱她時,她笑道﹕「我大概不太好聞。」她透露,綁匪把她禁錮在一個地洞裏, 首3周都有人看守,但最後1周則用鐵鏈鎖覑她的手腳便算。由於她個子矮小,在洞穴中勉強能站起來。她一直被蒙上雙眼,但綁匪沒有傷害她。

  22. 係唔係呢,都嗌住你唔好學人地講政治架喇,又撞板嘞,今次無端端又爆料,連奧巴馬同胡主席借錢都講埋俾人知,國家機密黎架,唔可以講得架,喺大陸就拉去打耙架喇,你真係膽生毛,不過話時話嘞,奧巴馬咁快就take over 咗薯仔囉咩?未坐正就同人講數借錢?我都話咗你係叻啲,乜Q都俾你知道,吖!睇落你個名又幾鬼似啲特務喎,好似周星馳個啲乜野〝長江1號〞〝長江7號〞如果真係特務就知道多啲野都唔出奇,唔怪得之你話有人mon你喇,都係唔同你講咁多,癈事你累街坊。

  23. 都係香港特區政府有遠見,嗱嗱聲要為網絡23條立法,睇吓呢度啦,即刻有人喺度洩漏國家機密,唔立法幾危險呀,騷緊涼應該睇睇呢度嘅案例,睇吓啲壞份子幾猖狂。

  24. It is distressing to watch Mellissa Fung after her release on TV. She is weak, tired, and very thin.

    She would be killed if no ransom was paid to the kidnappers this weekend.

    Do wish her the best.

  25. 奧巴馬在公開場合, 語無倫次, 對已故總統列根遺孀說話無禮, 雖然事後道歉, 但已經掩蓋不住佢嘅狂妄心態.

  26. 詳盡的詳盡的!咁少資料,我呢個周身屎無嘢好作,聯想唔到的咩嘢架!講咗的咩嘢話列根嗰老婆?咁多人唔揀,點解話列根老婆呀?呢單嘢同"佢嘅狂妄心態"點解會扯上關係呀?
    比多的料呀,的工蟻出去揾嘢食,的蟻王蟻后先至可以專心痾蛋架!一人做一樣,你揾料,我作嘢!分工合作,六四九的號碼,通常都係集體創作中頭奬架!

    “花費1355.25元購買了3張韓國歌星Rain多倫多演唱會的貴賓入場券。"

    WOW!咁富貴,一千三百五十五蚊買三張唱歌飛!好囉好囉!有錢出錢,雨過天晴,的錢凍過水,可能就係咁嚟架啦!咁富貴,真係唔公平,細路女的錢(圖中兩女)都呃,唔係,應該係老豆比錢,女就去享受聽歌,但係聽不到聲音;下次要聽歌,開著部收音機,買的下雨大海報,對住佢,咁唔係又平又正囉!
    有錢出錢,市場一片生意!

  28. 團體107動力數名成員昨日到公營機構生產力促進局大樓外抗議,力數該局包括有高層疑濫權貪污、功能與其他政府部門功能重疊等管理不善及浪費公帑七宗罪。有成員更扮演戴了皇冠的曾蔭權作出一副愛理不理狀,又攜同一個穿底的櫃桶,從空心的櫃桶中伸出魔爪,諷刺該局在政府「無王管」下,肆意浪費公帑。

  29. 鄧小平:「 不管白貓還是黑貓, 會抓老鼠的就是好貓! 」

    奧巴馬是不是隻好貓?

  30. 煲呔難逃再敗一仗 立會勢用特權法查雷曼

    雷曼投資者在民建聯總部施展「百人圍」絕招後,不論是民建聯中人,還是一直希望力挽狂瀾阻截立法會引用特權法調查雷曼事件的政府高層,都不禁嘆句「無力挽!」政府內部更已打定輸數,開始部署「善後」工作,包括會向外坦白交代未來本港的經濟前景有多嚴峻,社會各界應好好準備抵禦金融海嘯衝擊,而非一味在搞政治鬥爭;以及盡早評估一旦立法會完成調查聆訊,誰會是「高危人物」等等。銀行界中人則繼續私下警告,立法會通過用特權法之後,勢必增加下月初回購迷債難產的風險,因為只要有一家銀行要先看清楚立法會的戲法,原來說好要一致同意才一起行動的銀行回購方案便會無疾而終。

  31. 立法會明天將會表決是否引用《權力及特權法》調查雷曼事件。立法會金融界代表李國寶昨日去信全體立法會議員,指引用《特權法》會損害香港作為國際金融中心及商業中心的地位,呼籲他們否決議案。
