Kate Burton, the British aid worker freed by her Palestinian kidnappers says she regrets endangering her parents, who were abducted with her while on a visit to the Gaza Strip last week. Burton said most Palestinians had few opportunities for education and economic advancement. "They've got no choice, so they (the kidnappers) think that fighting in this way is the only way." The kidnapping had made her "love the Palestinian people even more," she said, adding that the majority were peace-loving and disapproved of violence. Asked if she would like to see her kidnappers punished, she replied: "Obviously I would, because they haven't done the right thing, and if you don't stop them they probably will go on doing it in the future."
