EU: Rescues endanger pirates' hostages
from The Philadelphia Inquirer
Despite successful raids by the Malaysian and South Korean navies that rescued two ships and their crew members from Somalian pirates, the European Union Naval Force said it would not follow suit because such raids could further endanger hostages. Malaysia's navy was holding seven Somalian pirates who were apprehended in the second dramatic commando raid within hours on ships seized near the African coast, authorities said.
