    Been no mention where or what has happened to the pirates,maybe we have come to our senses and shot them.Then chucked the bodies overboard with a nice heavy weight.

    No it seems,Eleven pirates were captured after the rescue operation, the foreign ministry added.

    BBC Said the Pirates are to be sent to Italy!
