Somali Piracy Grows Deadlier
On Tuesday, four American pleasure cruisers were killed aboard a yacht hijacked by pirates three days earlier, according to the U.S. Navy. The boat was seized in the Arabian Sea, a hundred or so miles off the coast of Oman.

Alerted to the hijacking, four U.S. warships, including the aircraft carrier Enterprise, tailed the yacht for three days and attempted to negotiate with the pirates for the release of the four hostages -- Scott and Jean Adam, of Southern California, and Robert Riggle and Phyllis Mackay, of Seattle.
