Meeting a Somali pirate in Hargeisa prison

BBC News "Farah Ismael Elih made no apologies for what he had done, and explained how unlucky he had been to be caught on his first ever pirate trip.

He appealed to all Somali pirates to increase their work
He said he had decided to change jobs from fishing to piracy because foreign trawlers had plundered all the fish in Somali waters.
He told me how, with the greatest of ease, he had bought a speedboat, an AK-47 rifle and a bazooka from a local market."
