Interesting Fact - Piracy

According to a report conducted by the United Nations crime unit, Interpol and the World Bank.
Somali pirates and their peers hijacking vessels in the region made about $400 million in ransom over the past eight years.

(What did they spend their ill-gotten gains on?  Drugs (especially khat), alcohol, women, and believe it or not, real estate.

I wonder if they phone Kirsty and Phil?)
