Well done, again!

This rescue was of the sailing couple who were taken from the 53' Amel, I believe? The pirates have been using their boat to lure other yachts in those waters.

I though it was humorous that these pirates, in addition to demanding ransom, also demanded the release of the pirates captured during the previous French commando raid (some months ago). How'd that work out for them?
