A Kidnapping from Two Sides

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

New York Times reporter David Rohde and his wife Kristen Mulvihill share their account of his abduction by the Taliban, and her struggle to free him. Rohde and two Afghan colleagues were kidnapped in November 2008 and held in Pakistan for seven months. In New York, David's wife of two months, Kristen Mulvihill, his family, and The New York Times worked to free him. Mulvihill and Rohde tell their story in A Rope and a Prayer: A Kidnapping from Two Sides, describing how the experience exposed the failures of American efforts in the region and tested and strengthened their relationship.
