A Danish family captured by pirates in the Indian Ocean will suffer the same fate as four American sailors slain last week if any rescue is attempt is made, a Somali pirate said Tuesday.
Pirates in Somalia said Wednesday they were ferrying ammunition and men to the 30 hijacked vessels still under their control, and they threatened to kill more captives following the violent end to a hostage standoff that left four Americans dead.
Somalia's Islamist al Shabaab rebels are seen as lacking the numbers and unity of purpose to carry out a threat by one of their leaders to attack the United States on its own territory.
