Former Beirut hostage Brian Keenan (pictured centre) visited Magilligan Prison to speak with prisoners about his experiences in the Middle East and his life since. Over 33 years ago, on April 11, 1986, the Belfast native was captured by terror group Islamic Jihad in Lebanon. He spent four-and-a-half years in a concrete cell, often in solitary confinement. He is pictured with Andy Tosh, Governor Magilligan Prison and Ronnie Armour, Director General of the NI Prison service.
