Earlier this year, Debbie Calitz and her former boyfriend, Bruno Pelizzari, made international headlines after they were released from captivity in Somalia. The pair were held captive, and sold between various pirate gangs, over the course of nearly two years before that.
Yesterday, the the crew of Dutch warship HNMLS Rotterdam spotted a suspected pirate boat close to the Somali shoreline. As they approached the boat, the pirates pulled out AK-47’s and opened fire.
The American woman and Danish man who were held hostage in Somalia were rescued this week by the same guys who killed Osama Bin Laden. They sure have been busy. *Cue fist pump from Barack Obama.*
