A story of friendship for American writer, Seychellois fishermen held by Somali pirates

Three people who met under frightening and difficult circumstances — being held hostage together by Somali pirates — say they are now lifelong friends.

Two Seychellois fishermen and an American journalist who lived and shared the distressing experience have remained friends. The three also share friendship with the British pilot who flew the two Seychellois out of Somalia.

Journalist Michael Scott Moore and pilot Captain Derek Seton were recently on the island nation for a reunion with Mark Sangoire and Rolly Tambara. Moore, Tambara and Sangoire were all held captive together.
