Under an Afghan Sky: Mellissa Fung's memoir of 28 days in captivity

In the fall of 2008, journalist Mellissa Fung was working in Afghanistan on a story about refugee camps. In an instant, her life changed forever. She was suddenly and violently grabbed by gunmen, beaten, driven into the countryside and stuffed into a hole in the ground. For the next 28 days, she was at times threatened, abandoned and abused, all the while being held for ransom. Now she's telling her story in a new book, Under an Afghan Sky: A Memoir of Captivity. Recently, she sat down with CBC News anchor Peter Mansbridge to talk about it all.
