PM RUDD TO HELP KIDNAPPED REPORTER

Interesting story in the Herald Sun newspaper today over Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd... and his willingness to help to free a kidnapped Australian journalist in Somalia.

Perhaps PM Rudd should be instructing his appointee as co-chair of the International Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Commission, Gareth Evans, to reveal any more information he knows about the David Wilson controversy.

Heather Brennan spent 20 minutes with Mr Rudd in Bundaberg on Thursday.

Mr Brennan, 37, and a Canadian journalist were kidnapped in Somalia 11 months ago and his family say his health is failing.

Mr Rudd said it was a "difficult, ugly and dangerous" part of the world and the Government was doing all it could to assist Mr Brennan.

"If I was to look at the consular cases upon which I have spent the most time since I've been Prime Minister, it is this one," he said.

"And similarly with the Foreign Minister and others. It is one which the Government takes seriously, but I do not underestimate the degree of difficulty involved in this."
