Andre's wife, Lourika, said: "I nearly jumped out of my skin from joy when I heard about the call. My husband is really alive."

Andre [Durant], Hardus Greeff, Callie Scheepers and Johann Enslin were working as security guards for Safenet Security Services in Iraq when they were stopped by men in police uniforms on December 10, 2006.
