Any update news on the English sailing couple held hostage in Somalia? Have I missed something or are they still there?

There is a court injunction stopping the media from reporting that they may have been killed. In fact there is a super-injunction banning the media from reporting that there is an injunction. Read in to that what you will. I've probably said too much...

A very quickly dropped story I thought and I think if that is the case the outcome must be inevitable.

Errm.....if they're dead, then why the injunctions?

It isn't going to do them any good now, is it?

These injunctions would only apply to the British media wouldn't they?

Can't find anything on the internet.

What is it about this particular event of piracy that prevents an SAS-style rescue like the one the SEAL team did awhile back on one of these episodes?

A bit of an update here

Looks like the family paid a ransom, but the Chandlers have not been released.

Every so often, they let out a little whimper telling us they are still alive but could be killed at any minute. I feel genuinely sorry for them but everytime I think they've gone, they sort of pop up on the news again. And it always makes me think of this scene from Austin Powers laugh

Watch 'Blackhawk Down' for the answer to that one. The SEAL's were humped last time there. There is no 'sneaking' into an area where people live on the streets, there's eyes everywhere and every-fecker has an 'AK'.
