Hi pjmulberry-ga, Thanks for your question. The island in question is Madagascar. A group of backpackers were staying in Isalo National Park when bandits attacked their camp. Locals armed with spears thwarted the robbers by rushing the camp en masse.

An article in "the Daily Mail" identified her companions as "seven other Britons." "How Spear-Waving Samaritans Saved Me from Bandits," by David Wilkes.
