British academic Hedges thanks UK foreign ministry for safe return
Hedges arrived in London on Tuesday a day after he was pardoned in the United Arab Emirates from a life sentence in a spying case.
"Thank you so much to the British Embassy and the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) for their efforts in ensuring I arrived safely back home," Hedges said in a statement. (Reporting by Aziz El Yaakoubi, writing by Alexander Cornwell)
