It sucks to be held hostage by Somali pirates
Humans At Sea’s Save Our Seafarers organization interviews a mariner who, as an Indian Naval cadet, was held hostage for eight months (!) by a pirate action group armed with RPGs off the coast of Somalia in 2010. The guy seems really sedate, but make no mistake, what he went through was pretty rough and went past getting just a little roughed up.
The video also features an interview with the EU naval force patrolling the area, who seems like he is trying to walk a dozen beats with one cop. Pretty sobering if you are a seafarer in that part of the world.
