Asked and answered

After the American tourists interrupting a terrorist attack on a train in Belgium, we now have, via the United Arab Emirates press agency --

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, telephoned British Prime Minister David Cameron last night to inform him that the UAE Armed Forces operating in Aden had reached the location in Yemen where UK citizen Douglas Robert Semple had been kidnapped by the terrorist Al Qaeda organisation. During a military intelligence operation, the UAE forces had freed Mr. Semple, taking him to Aden from where he was flown on a UAE military aircraft to Abu Dhabi. 

Is anyone in the European intelligence/security apparatus actually working in August?
