The Pirates of Somalia

Hosted by

Off the coast of Somalia today, French troops captures six pirates after they released 30 hostages who'd been held on a tourist yacht. France claims no public money was used to pay ransom, but the boat's owners may have handed over some money. Daniel Sekulich, who formerly worked for the Canadian Broadcasting Company, is author of Ocean Titans: Journeys in Search of the Soul of a Ship.
