A bit of good news out of Somalia - the British couple kidnapped by pirates over a year ago have just been released!

Great news. According to the report in the Guardian the family hired a "specialist negotiating team" and a ransom was eventually paid. I never knew that there were people who specialize in pirate negotiations. I wonder how you get into that line of work?

By being brave, no doubt. Ex military maybe?
