SOMALI PIRATES DROWN AS THEY FLEE WITH RANSOM
SIX Somali pirates who hijacked a Saudi supertanker drowned with their share of the ransom when their boat capsized as it left the vessel, their leader said yesterday.

Four others were missing with their share of the $3m payoff, which been parachuted on to the tanker on Friday, Mohamed Said said by phone from the port of Harardhere.

“The small boat that was carrying those killed and eight who survived was overloaded . . . they were afraid of a chase from outsiders [foreign navies of the combined maritime forces],” he said.

Mohamud Aden, a resident of the port off which the tanker had been anchored watched by the warships, said: “The capsize was an accident. The pirates were full of joy and partially frightened by the presence of foreign war machines and were speeding. That was a tragedy for the pirates.”

In all, several dozen raiders had held the ship and its 25-member crew, including two Britons, to ransom. They were well-armed and disciplined but as soon as they got the ransom a shootout nearly broke out, it was reported.

The 1,080ft Sirius Star, owned by Aramco, is the largest vessel hijacked by the Somali pirates. It was seized in November in the Indian Ocean, well outside the raiders’ usual operating area.

The tanker was carrying 2m barrels of oil, more than a quarter of Saudi Arabia’s daily output and worth an estimated $100m. Its capture was seen as a dramatic demonstration of the pirates’ ability to strike hundreds of miles offshore.

The tanker’s crew included second officer Jim Grady, from Renfrewshire, and chief engineer Peter French, from Co Durham. Yesterday they were looking forward to coming home, though latest reports said the ship was still anchored off Harardhere.

More than 100 ships were attacked off the Horn of Africa last year and maritime officials said the problem was out of control. The pirates were said to have raked in $120m and still hold some 14 merchant ships and 300 crew.

The Sirius Star’s release came as the US Fifth Fleet announced that a taskforce targeting piracy would be launching later this month.

Nato and the European Union have warships in the Gulf and the Chinese navy has said it will assist.

They were no threat. Just trying to protect their coastal fishing waters from the ocean going trawlers cleaning them out.

That and others dumping chemical waste killing off the fish.

Oh those poor innocents, do you suppose the UN will make a new law protecting these men, so they won't feel fear as they escape with the ransom next time?

Or is their a human rights lawyer who can argue that its a universal right to enjoy the proceeds of hijacking.

Whether the boat sunk or was torpedoed, you don't pillage the high seas and plunder nations who can blow your ass out of the water with ease. Darwinism at it's best.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 568001


maybe
but it has become quite the industry and very lucrative to many, towns have sprung up because of this and goods are to be had that they could never have afforded in the past. when you live on a few hundred dollars a year, it gets a little tempting

since no one appears willing to read the thread i posted and find out the whole story, i will elaborate. their waters have become dumping grounds for the rest of the world, including nuclear waste, and illegal trawlers have stripped the sea life clean, leaving nothing for them to harvest, and future harvesting ruined.

and now because of these pirates, the security council has formed the first, world navy. one of two things is really happening, this is the first organized leg of the NWO, or, it is just a pretense for the worlds navies all to be in the same waters, getting ready to do battle, as in the final battle
