The Sirius Star was captured by pirates in November with 25 crew members, 450 nautical miles southeast of Kenya. Yesterday five of the eight Somali pirates drowned when a wave washed over their getaway boat as they squabbled over over how to split their $3 million ransom. The ransom money had been dropped from a low flying airplane and the pirates were trying to make a quick get-a-way in their small boat with rough seas. TRAGIC ISN'T IT?
