I’m posting a follow up article one day after I posted the article above. Here’s an interesting excerpt from today’s article:

Maritime officials said the Maersk Alabama was carrying food aid for Somalia and Uganda from Djibouti to Mombasa, a Kenyan port, when it was seized far out in the Indian Ocean.”

So, here is the highest concentration of Western hands on a cargo ship I’ve ever heard of , and, of all things, they are carrying food aid from Djibouti to Mombasa????
