Somali pirate's body washes ashore with $153,000 - Yahoo! News

Five pirates drowned Friday when their small boat capsized after they received a reported $3 million ransom for releasing a Saudi oil tanker. Local resident Omar Abdi Hassan said one of the bodies had been found on a beach near the coastal town of Haradhere and relatives were searching for the other four.

...

The U.S. navy released photos of a parachute dropping a package onto the deck of the Sirius Star, and said the package was likely to be the ransom delivery.

But five of the dozens of pirates who had hijacked the tanker drowned when their small boat capsized as they returned to shore in rough weather. Three other pirates survived but also lost their share of the ransom.

somali pirates arent so bad, they usually just take the money and leave. the ones you gotta worry about are the ones in southeast asia, those guys get on the boat, kill everyone, take the ship and strip it of valuables, then sell or scuttle the ship.

Some friends of our family did the sail-around-the-world thing, and the people they traveled with for some time were attacked by pirates. I have an email forward with the official report they filed to authorities somewhere. Some pretty crazy ramming and shotgun action to hear about happening "in this day and age." Anybody interested?

Funny how the price of gas would go up when someone overheard their cousins girlfriend's uncles grandfather whisper the words refinery fire... yet an entire supertanker got stolen and nothing... Anyways... yeah that was awesome.

Interested! If you find it I would like to see it. And I don't think I'm the only one
