A BBC reporter who had failed to contact the Somali pirates by phone let her 12-year-old daughter try, and the pirates opened up to the girl, the BBC is reporting.

The girl’s mother then realized the she had been trying to contact the Pittsburgh Pirates.


The girl has been asked to join the diplomatic corps at the Foreign Office, but she has declined the offer, saying it would interfere with chores at home.
