Music has long been known to elicit a gamut of emotions from listeners. From joy, to sadness, to running the other way in the case of Somali Pirates exposed to the melodious tones of Britney Spears.
Right now there’s an alleged Somali pirate kicking himself in a cell in Bruges. Sneeky Belgian undercover agents tricked an internationally wanted pirate boss and his right-hand man into flying to Belgium to be the subjects of a documentary about the pirate’s careers on the high seas.
The American jihadi Omar Hammami who tweeted in April “Just been shot in neck by assassin” has died, according to a Somalian Islamic group. His fame on Twitter and Youtube likely made a target who someone thought need to be silenced.
