Spectrum - Bangkok Post: High and dry

Bangkok Post e-paper of today, Sunday March 22nd, has an interesting article about a group of Thai fishermen that was captured by Somali pirates, and kept in captivity for nearly 5 years. Some of the captured fishermen never saw freedom again, and their boats are also gone. The article tells the story starting from the time they found job on the fishing boat, through their capture and the shattered life they returned to when coming back home.†

The article is highly recommended Sunday evening reading for anyone remotely interested in shipping or piracy. If you are not an e-subscriber, you can also find an online version by clicking on the image below.†
