Stephen McGown opens up about six years as al-Qaeda hostage and how he converted to Islam

A Briton held captive by al-Qaeda for six years has described how his conversion to Islam saved his life and insisted that he would retain his Muslim faith.

Stephen McGown, 42, who also holds South African citizenship, was kidnapped at gunpoint by extremists in Mali in 2011, with two tourists, from Sweden and the Netherlands.

McGown said although he had been well treated, he was distraught to have not be freed before his mother died.
