(Reuters) - Only two years after deciding to join in the piracy rampant off the Somalian coast, Saeed Yare is a dollar multi-millionaire.

"It is not an easy job being a pirate. You gamble with your life, but I enjoy being a piracy tycoon," says the slim 27-year-old, dressed in a sharp suit he says is Italian.

Full story - HERE (read the 2 pages of the report)

This Report does not make sense. The Puntland 'Government' which sent troops to rescue the Danish hostages - sent them from Bosassa (which is the 'capital of Puntland) Which is the same little town where Saeed Yare is presently based.

Mind you this whole scene would fit into Alice in Wonderland.!!!
