Suspected Somali pirates released, feed fish
Rather than transport them back to Moscow for an expensive trial the Russian navy instead cast 10 suspected Somali pirates adrift in an inflatable boat without any navigation aids. Their likely fate?
"It seems that they all died," the unnamed source was quoted as saying by Russia's Interfax news agency.
The inflatable boat, while not exactly spacious, was apparently perfectly sea-worthy.
Editing note: That would be "pirates", not "pairates". Corrected.
