Ordeal: engineer Robert Pether, who is being detained in Iraq

Today marks one year since Irish-based Australian engineer Robert Pether was arrested and illegally detained in Baghdad.

The father of three spends his days sitting on the floor of a 14-foot cell with 16 other men, hoping and praying he will make it home alive to his wife and children in Co Roscommon.
