did anybodyelse hear about the pirates that tookover the boat what happen???
well I think it happened on the coast of somalia, pirates- not ones with the wooden legs lol the ones who are basically thugs-hijacked a cargo ship and the captain of the ship offered himself as a hostage to save the other crew, the crew regained control of the ship and the pirates and captain (now a hostage) were left stranded on a life boat with supplies for about 3 days. during that time the us navy tried to comprimise with the pirates and get the captain back safetley but it all resulted in sniper killing 3 of the pirates in order to rescue the captain who is home safe now. there was a lot of coverage on the news and I dont even live in america I just have a dad who will only watch the news
Yes, it's all over... for the time being.
Could I suggest an excellent, and frequently updated, website for international news? It's the BBC World Service, and you can find them on
From that page there are also links to specific geographical areas, so it's easy to stay 'in the picture'.
(By the way, if you check out that link today you'll find a story from Norway about a driver who...welll, he was with his girfriend, and they were doing a bit more than driving at the time. And that happenedat full speed on the main highway that passes by near where I live...)
I HEARD ABOUT IT
I honestly dont know what happend exactly I was just stunned that there are still pirates out and about then we got into a conversation why me and my friend should be pirates...
yup, snipers killed three of them and rescued the Captian of the ship, all is well now.
yea they killed three but yesterday they let the captain go.
3 were killed by u.s. snipers and the other is in custody
