Somali pirates killed in Ukraine ship shootout


www.abc.net.au

Rival Somali pirates arguing over what to do with a hijacked Ukrainian ship and its cargo of 33 tanks engaged in a shootout on board, killing three of them, a maritime group has said.

In the most high-profile of this year's wave of hijackings off lawless Somalia, pirates seized the MV Faina six days ago and have demanded $20 million in ransom.

I am posting this article in direct response to another thread (Pirates Die Strangely After Taking Iranian Ship: www.abovetopsecret.com...) to demonstrate that a shootout is not a mystery death lol.

How can there be any certainty that it was not the crew of the ship that were shot? Did they observe all of that through a telescope? Last I heard there were no journalists with a satellite uplink onboard the ship.

The newspaper I read today said the pirates communicated via a satellite telephone. Must be such equipment on the ship already.
Besides, there were navy vessels all around the ship with telescopes.

They also said that one of the crew "died from natural causes". Whatever that means...
