I wonder if McGeogh agrees with this lede:
Hopes for the release of Douglas Wood soared yesterday after the hostage was allowed to make a phone call in which he assured the Australian cleric Sheik Taj el-Din al Hilaly he was alive and well.
Only asking, cos the story simply says Sheik Hilaly got approached at the Babylon Hotel by a stranger who handed him a mobile phone and he thinks Douglas Woods was on the other end.
Is it right to say so baldly that Douglas made a call?
Whatever. I hope they are right even if there is no hard evidence, just the sincere sayso of Sheik Hilaly.
