Shiver me timbers
Charity press officers working on Somalia like to bemoan the fact that it is almost impossible to get stories about their country into the mainstream media. (As if somehow journalists have a duty to run stories about how much more money is needed for a country whose leaders survive by erm stealing aid money, but don’t get me started.) Anyway, they should thank their lucky stars they have pirates…
- Pirates help fund Somali warlords
- Somali pirates hijack four ships in 48 hours
- Somalian pirates seize three ships in one day in plunder campaign
Congo doesn’t even have pirates.
