U.S., World: The captain tried (and failed) to escape the Somali pirates

  • U.S. officials say Richard Phillips is still safe. Phillips attempted to escape into the water but was recaptured by the four gunmen currently holding him hostage. Despite this, the government has every reason to believe Phillips remains unharmed. In other news, Maersk would not say how its crew regained control of the ship from the pirates – they say they’ll launch an investigation later. source
